Sweet Book Summary:
Ms. Plum's third grade classroom is quite magical, especially that yummy smelling supply closet. Everyone in school knows it's a magical place, but past and present students find they can't talk about it, even if they would wish. The students LOVE Ms. Plum and her classroom, but asked why and they can't provide an answer. Hmmmmm, a little mysterious wouldn't you say?

The answer to the mystery is that Ms. Plum and her supply closet are full of magic. When a student is picked to go get something from the closet, something magical happens. For instance, when Eric, who is a constant interrupter, goes into the closet, he comes out with a parrot, who begins to constantly interrupt Eric. Guess who learns a lesson? When Darma, who the class deems clumsy and not worth their attention, gets a pack of squirrels who wait on her hand and foot, Darma suddenly becomes the envy of the class.

It's a book full of lessons on kindness, appropriate behavior and community sharing that is hidden in a wonderful little story that will keep your reader very interested. This will be a wonderful addition to your bookshelf.
