This review is for the entire Black Lagoon series. It describes the fears about what their teacher will be like on the first day of school. Will the teacher have fangs, eat students, or assign fractions for homework? It makes the subject light at the end, since of course their teacher is not a monster at all. Children love this series and want to listen over and over. Other characters in the Black Lagoon series include: the principal, school nurse, the bus driver, music teacher, and more. This could be a fun way to introduce different individuals at school. I often ask what they think happens next to students, since it’s all so terrible.
– opening page:
It’s the first day of school. I wonder who my teacher is. I hear Mr. Smith has dandruff and warts.
