I Should Have Stayed in Bed

Written by Jaon Lexau • Illustrated by Syd Hoff

Sam was always late for school because when the two bells ring that means he's even later for school. His friend Albert was kind of mean and didn't wait for him. They have friends to walk to school with. Albert is his friend. Read this book to find out the rest.

The book is about him getting hurt, because he hit his head on the teacher's desk, because he was spinning around .

I like the book because it is about being late for school.

My favorite character is Sam. Sam wasn't always late for school he got hurt.

The book made me wonder if there might be a second or third book something like this one and if they do I will read them.

And when I read it I feel weird .

I recommend this book to my brothers and sisters mom and dad.
