Description

In this epistolary follow-up to the best-selling First Day Jitters and Last Day Blues, Mrs. Hartwell receives letters over the course of one school year from just about everyone.

As every first-year teacher knows, a classroom full of second graders can be alarmingly unpredictable.The letters the children write to Mrs. Hartwell are sympathetic ("I figured you might be a little scared, just like me"); informative ("…most kids don't eat cauliflower"); encouraging ("Yesterday was THE BEST!"); and apologetic ("I'm sorry about throwing up all over your shoes"). Even a local firefighter writes to Sarah Jane.

Fun, funny, and heart-warming, Danneberg’s The Jitters series is sure to delight both teachers and children as they follow Mrs. Hartwell and her class through the year. With School Year Jitters, classes will be inspired to write letters to their own teachers about their favorite, or wildest, days of the year.
