There are a vast number of books in children's literature that merit an award. Books that teach children valuable lessons while still managing to entertain them and hold their interest. One such book in that category is without-a-doubt "Miss Nelson Is Missing" by Harry Allard & James Marshall. I remember the first time my mother read me this book. It was truly magical. I loved the plot of naughty students who gave their sweet, caring teacher a hard way to go and what she eventually did about it. This book is not only humorous, but shows kids the importance in appreciating others. This book is a classic and deserves to have a "spotlight turned on it"! Dozens of the books of "yesteryear" still apply to today's youth. So pick up a copy today. No home library would be complete without this book.
