Why Did My Teacher Cry Today?: A Homework Tale by Renee Lovekids is a humorous, fast-paced story about an enthusiastic, popular teacher named Señora Cruz who loves her job as a teacher…and who also loves homework—she loves to give it, and she also loved to do homework when she was a student. Her class is not united in their agreement on that matter, and they have a debate over homework policies in Señora Cruz’s class. Whatever your thoughts may be about homework, this book shows how a group of students who engage in a healthy debate can methodically develop reasoning and analytical skills. I loved this book because it was bilingual and featured a very diverse group of students who work together to accomplish a goal and win a prize that means a lot to them.
