PEANUT BUTTER AND HOMEWORK SANDWICHES- Lisa Broadie Cook

It is Monday morning, and Marvin McGregor is eagerly anticipating seeing his teacher's pet tarantula. When he arrives at school, however, he discovers that the teacher has broken his arm and will be out sick for a few days. The substitute, Ms. Payne, gives lots and lots of homework.

Marvin has the best of intentions, but he keeps having homework mishaps. On Monday, he spills peanut butter on his homework and the dog eats it. On Tuesday, he accidentally leaves it in his pocket, and his mother washes it. Another day, he exchanges backpacks with his little sister, and takes her doll to school.

Shared this, along with the poem, "Homework, Oh Homework" today. The fourth graders loved it!

It looks like such a terrific book. I'll be sure to share your review with others at my school. Thanks!
