Anna starts a new school year with a new teacher who is very different in this sixth book in the Friendship Garden series.
It’s a new school year, which means new books, new sharpened pencils, and a new beginning! Anna’s excited to start fourth grade, but she’s not excited about her fourth-grade teacher, Miss Lopez. Miss Lopez is nothing like Mr. Hoffman, Anna’s third grade teacher.
For starters, Miss Lopez is S-T-R-I-C-T. She doesn’t allow talking or humming or anything fun. Not only that, but she seems to dislike Anna right off the bat.
When Miss Lopez doesn’t pick Anna to help out in the class’s new butterfly garden, Anna realizes she needs to make Miss Lopez like her, once and for all. And she’s willing to do whatever it takes! But how do you force someone like you…especially a teacher?
