A Letter From Your Teacher: On the First Day of School Paperback – 19 May 2021
Enhance your purchase
From the author and illustrator of Our Class is a Family, this heartwarming picture book helps teachers in welcoming their new group of students on the first day of school. Through a letter written from the teacher’s point of view, students are given the message that their new teacher is someone they will get to form a special bond with. Their teacher is not only there to help them academically, but also to cheer them on, and to provide a caring, safe environment for them to learn and grow. During back to school time, teachers are wanting to set the tone for the new year. In addition to establishing rules and procedures, they are ready to get to know their kids and start building positive relationships. This is a read aloud that helps with laying that foundation, and it serves as a great starting point for get-to-know-you activities and class community building. There is a blank space on the last page for teachers to sign their own name, so that students know that the letter in the book is coming straight from them. With its sincere message and inclusive illustrations, A Letter From Your Teacher is a valuable addition to any elementary school teacher’s classroom library.

A very concerning letter from your TeacherReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on 27 May 2021
I am HIGHLY alarmed and disturbed! I had heard so much about this book and was very excited to order it for my class. I mean, I’m ordering a first day of school book before the current last day of school. Well, it arrived today and when I took it out of the packaging I noticed the book being rather thick- Which I thought was highly unusual for a CHILDREN’S PICTURE BOOK. Oh but nay nay! I began flipping through the book, the beginning started out quite lovely, until I got to the middle in which it becomes a builders manual for an AK-AKM rifle!!!! Oh yes, you read that correctly. Why on gods green earth would there be a gun building manual in the middle of a children’s book! A children’s book called “A Letter from your Teacher” - what kind of letter/message is this book trying to send?! Not only am I disappointed but I’m also concerned that this purchase will flag me onto some kind of terrorist/government watch list. This is not okay.

Slightly disappointedReviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 28 March 2022
Through reviews and publicity of this book I interpreted it as a book you would read to your current class to prep them for the following year. However it appears to be one that you read to your new class on their first day of school. The book is also very flimsy and considering the price, I expected more.

Very thin, flimsy bookReviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 16 August 2022
Surprised and disappointed by the quality of this book. It’s basically made from paper. Don’t think it would hold up to being handled by small chn.
Wonderful bookReviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 8 August 2021
Brilliant book, with such a lovely message. I am so happy to have come across this book via the teaching community on Instagram. I’m looking forward to sharing it with my class in the Autumn, and establishing a caring classroom community. Gorgeous illustrations too!
