Review: Because of Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea

What is the name of your favorite teacher? I am spoilt because almost all of my teachers are and have been very nice. But there is one teacher in particular that I like the most because she is very kind, stays calm in any situation, motivates her students to give their best and is also fun.

This book is also about a great teacher.

What is this book all about?
There is a new teacher in grade 5 at Snow Hill School. He is called Mr. Terupt.
But Mr. Terupt is not the only new face. There is also a new girl called Jessica. She comes from California and is very nice.
And then there is the rest of the class: Peter, Luke, Alexia, Danielle, Anna and Jeffrey. They don’t like each other very much but everyone likes Mr. Terupt.
He is teaching them more than just Math and English. They learn about friendship, responsibility and respect.
Mr Terupt had a hook in the ceiling of the classroom. Everytime one of his students did something very good, he puts a link to the chain hanging of the hook. And as soon as the chain reaches the ground, they had one day where they can do anything they want.
When the big day came it snowed and everyone wanted to go outside to have a snowball fight. But then a terrible accident happened. Mr. Terupt got hit by a snowball and fell into a coma.
Of course the kids where shocked and now have to show what lessons they had learned from their teacher.
What will happen to the kids and will Mr. Terupt come back? You have to read to find out!

How did I like the book?
I liked the book a lot because Mr. Terupt changed the lives of seven students in a good way.

Who is this book for?
This book is for kids 8 years and older.

Rating: 10/10

Review: The Boy at the Back of the Class by Onjali Q. Rauf

There used to be a free desk in the class room and then Ahmet came.
He was a very serious, shy and quiet guy but Alexa and her friends Josie, Tom and Michael made him feel welcome.
