  • The Book is NOT Better: A Series of Unfortunate Events

    The Book is NOT Better: A Series of Unfortunate Events

    A friend and fellow teacher at my school has a sign in her room that reads “The book is ALWAYS better.” It’s an amusing sign that speaks volumes about her personality, and her former students often quote it when they enter my classroom a year later. However, as much fun as it is, I don’t think that sign is accurate. Oh, to be sure, the book is USUALLY better.

Plus, you get all the classic toy commercials you grew up with.

    The eight episodes, to date, have explored the worlds of Star Wars, Barbie, He-Man, G.I. Joe, Star Trek, TransFormers, LEGO, and Hello Kitty. That’s a ton of toyetic goodness. But if you’re like any other human being, you probably read that list and immediately asked, “Hey, what about…” and then filled in whatever your own favorite toy line is.That’s natural, there are...
