AUTHOR: Renee Lovekids
"Why Did My Teacher Cry Today?" is an engaging story that students, teachers, and parents alike will find useful and interesting. Señora Cruz loves homework, but not all of her students agree. They hold a debate to discuss their views about homework. The class competes and wins the Best Behavior Certificate, but Señora Cruz is disappointed with the prize offered to her class. This book will appeal to a variety of children, parents, grandparents, and teachers.
In this book, Ms. Lovekids continues the story of Mrs. Cruz and her former class. She discusses the implementation of "looping", a method of teaching in which the educator follows their previous class into a new year, hence, the stories of her class continue. The narrator recounts events from the latter year and reflects on how the lessons Mrs. Cruz taught, though humorous, about germs and cleanliness, would have a surprising effect on her class that year. Her ""Spread love, not germs"" class motto would be a statement the class would never forget. The discussion of germs and disease would become an eventual conversation in the world as a result of COVID-19 and its effect on children, parents, and educators.
