Late for School! by Stephanie Calmenson, illustrated by Sachiko Yoshikawa (Carolrhoda Books, 2008)
Mr. Bungles is late for school and he's the teacher! He rushes like mad to get to school in time...will he make it? This is a great read-aloud that begs for children to chime in. "I missed the train. I won't make a fuss. Down the street, I can catch the....bus!" Children will quickly pick up on the rhyming and anticipate what Mr. Bungles will try next to reach his destination. A fun twist on the daily struggle of getting to school on time!
