Giveaway: Close Encounters of the Third-Grade Kind by Phillip Done

School's out for summer, but September is right around the corner! I found the perfect book for all of you parents out there: Close Encounters of the Third-Grade Kind: Thoughts on Teacherhood by Phillip Done. Anna at Hachette Book Group was kind enough to offer 5 copies of this book to 5 lucky readers. Be one of the first to receive this book, which will be released on September 5, 2009.
First a little bit about the book:
A twenty-year veteran of the classroom, elementary school teacher Phillip Done takes readers through a lively and hilarious year in the classroom. Starting with the relative calm before the storm of buying school supplies and posting class lists, he shares the distinct personalities of grades K-4, what he learned from two professional trick or treating 8-year-old boys, the art of learning cursive and letter-writing, how kindergartners try to trap leprechauns, and what every child should experience before he or she grows up.

These charming, sweet, and funny tales of Mr. Done's trials and triumphs as an award-winning schoolteacher will touch reader's hearts and remind them of the true joys of childhood. We all have that one special, favorite grade school teacher whom we fondly remember throughout our adult lives - and every teacher also has students whom they will never forget. This is the perfect book for teachers, parents, and anyone else who is looking for a lighthearted, nostalgic read.
Now for the Giveaway Guidelines:
