Keep Ms Sugarman in Fourth Gr

Keep Ms Sugarman in Fourth Gr


No teacher has ever appreciated Jackie's excessive enthusiasm, until Ms. Sugarman. When Ms. Sugarman leaves the fourth grade to become principal, Jackie is devastated. "The honest and caring relationship between [Jackie] and Ms. Sugarman is one that every student and teacher might envy. Solid characterizations, with good insight into the difference an understanding teacher can make." - SLJ. "A funny, heartwarming story with a very real little girl at it heart. Any student who has ever idolized a wonderful teacher will sympathize with Jackie." - ALA Booklist 1995 Charlie May Simon Children's Book Honor Award (AR)

Lexile Measure

Please note that the Lexile measures for a small population of books have been recently updated. Enhancements were made to more precisely measure materials read in K-2 classrooms. Although the vast majority of books that have Lexile measures did not change, a small subset of books required updated Lexile measures.

Many products and services offer Lexile measures for their books and reading materials. We are working with the hundreds of companies that partner with us to transition them to the more precise Lexile measures.
