Overview

Award-winning duo Judy Finchler and Kevin O'Malley are back with another book in the best-selling Miss Malarkey series that makes reading fun!

Principal Wiggins has promised to dye his hair purple and sleep on the school roof if the students read 1,000 books this year, and Miss Malarkey is determined to find the right book for every student, including this story's reluctant-reader narrator. Winning her students over book by book, Miss Malarkey will have students loving to read in no time. As the best-selling series continues in paperback, no teacher, librarian, or parent should leave this book behind!

Principal Wiggins promises to dye his hair purple and sleep on the school roof if the students read 1,000 books this year. Miss Malarkey is determined to find the right book for each student so they'll participate in the school program, and learn to love reading. She's got a tough audience - video game fanatics, artists, sports lovers - nonreaders all. But she won't give up until Principal Wiggins can flip his purple wig.

With all the new pressures being put on teachers these days, the one thing everyone agrees about is the need for all children to learn to love reading. Now, the best-selling Miss Malarkey series uses all the programs and initiatives developed to help children read as fodder for the humor mill, keeping everyone laughing about this important topic. No teacher, librarian or parent should leave this book behind!

This book is a must have for librarians and reading teachers alike. It has a strong message that all reluctant readers need to hear. They need to know that there's a book out there that is just right for them. Once they find that book, it opens up the world to them.

Loved the way the book showed the dedication of a teacher to help a student become interested in Reading! My soon to be 2nd grader identified with Sam. He, too, does not enjoy reading, but this book struck a chord with him.

Judy Finchler and Kevin O'Malley's Miss Malarkey Leaves No Reader Behind provides another Miss Malarkey tale, this telling of a principal who says he'll dye his toupee purple and sleep on the school's roof if the students read 1,000 books before June. Miss Malarkey is determined to turn her class into readers ¿ including the athletes, artists and video game players. But how? Another fun story evolves.
