Review: The Class from the Black Lagoon (Black Lagoon #10)

User Review  - Gaby Roman - Goodreads

I would read this story to my students in the beginning of the year. I would talk to my students about how some people have expectations about certain things in life, but they end up being different from what we expected. I really enjoyed this book and the illustrations were really good. Read full review

User Review  - Tanya - Goodreads

Near 8-yo says at the end, "They [the children] aren't monsters anymore. They must be monsters at home now!" (I agreed) She did not get it at all. I love that she still has that innocence from time to time, cuz she's catching on all too fast most of the time. Read full review
