Miss Daisy is crazy. It turns out she hates arithmetic and, really, it seems as though she can't do it too well either. This is second grade, and Miss Daisy doesn't even know how to read. Can't read a word it turns out!

In the first My Weird School book ever, second-grade teacher Miss Daisy is in over her head at Ella Mentary School. She doesn't even know how to add or subtract!

But the students, like A.J. and his friends, have other things on their minds. Principal Klutz has promised their class that if they read a million pages in books, they can turn the school into a video-game arcade for one whole night!

Perfect for reluctant readers and word lovers alike, Dan Gutman’s insanely popular My Weird School series has something for everyone. Don’t miss the hilarious adventures of A.J. and the gang!---from the publisher

I give this book zero stars, even though I put one (zero wasn't allowed as a choice). Cringed when my first grader brought it home from school and was assigned to read the second chapter, which used the words "hate", "stupid" and "dumb" freely, and sometimes in reference to the teacher. I know that many kids and families may find this funny, but none of these words are allowed or encouraged in our home, and I definitely didn't want them encouraged in school. So many more positive choices out there for first grade reading. Myndi B.
