Miss Mingo and the First Day at School by Jamie Harper
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


On sharing day in Miss Mingo's multispecies class, we learn that Cricket hears with his legs, Snake smells with his tongue, and Frog enjoys eating his own skin in this nonfiction storybook filled to the gills with laughter -- and learning. If there's an elephant in the classroom -- along with an alligator, a koala, a centipede, an octopus, and who knows what else -- it must be Miss Mingo's class on the first day of school! Miss Mingo, herself a flashy flamingo, is eager to start off the year by inviting all creatures great and small to share something special about themselves. From the enormous Hippo to the teeny Ant, each member of her class is certainly unique. Do you have any idea how long Giraffe's tongue is? Or how much water Pelican's pouch can hold? Visit Miss Mingo's classroom for just one day and meet a delightfully diverse group of students -- and discover a world full of wonderful facts!
