Mrs. Belle is back in this sequel to The Teacher Who Would Not Retire. It’s the summer, and Mrs. Belle is off to Camp as the Head Counselor. This time, her insistence on wearing ballet slippers for all events--including hiking, bowling, and scuba diving--is causing camp upheaval. Mr. Rivera (the new camp owner) is upset, and he’s determined to get Mrs. Belle to wear the proper shoe. Can the children devise a compromise to save Mrs. Belle’s counseling job and her sore feet, too? Children, parents, grandparents, and teachers will
cheer–once again–as Mrs. Belle embarks on another hilarious adventure with her students.
Also available, the Sustrins’ Award Winning first book: The Teacher Who Would Not Retire
Grandparents, teachers, and parents will love this fun way to teach children about retirement and the love of learning.

"The Teacher Who Would Not Retire is a cheery picture book about a retiring first grade teacher who makes every effort to stay involved with her students, disguising herself as a cafeteria cook, a firefighter, a window washer, and much more, yet the students always recognize her by her ballet slippers. An enjoyable story collaboratively written by Sheila and Letty Sustrin, with easygoing and fun color illustrations by Thomas H. Bone III, The Teacher Who Would Not Retire would prove an especially welcome and popular addition to any elementary school library picture book collection."
