A Robin Hill School first-grader gets a summertime surprise in this sunny Ready-to-Read!

Since it's summer, instead of attending Robin Hill School, Hannah gets to do other fun things, like go to the beach with her family. Imagine her surprise when she sees her teacher, Mrs. Connor! In a bathing suit! Turns out, teachers don't live at school--and they are just as friendly outside of the classroom. Together, Mrs. Connor and Hannah look for treasure on the beach and share a beautiful summer day.

School's out for the summer in this latest early reader in the Robin Hill School series. Hannah's heading to the beach with her mom and has big plans to hunt for treasure. But before she can put shovel to sand, she sees Mrs. Connor her teacher! How can a teacher be at the beach? How can she be wearing a swimsuit? This humorous early reader, with large type, simple vocabulary, and cheerful, summery cartoonlike pictures, is ideal for beginning readers, many of whom may relate to Hannah's shock at seeing her teacher anywhere but behind a desk.--Kelley, Ann Copyright 2010 Booklist
