Gooney Bird Greene
The quintessential 2nd grade read aloud book. Gooney Bird Greene is the most eccentric, interesting new kid to ever walk into Watertower Elementary School. A phenomenal storyteller who loves to be “smack dab in the middle of everything.”
Gooney Bird intrigues her peers with her unique outfits, whimsical expressions and prides herself on telling only “absolutely true stories.” Gooney Bird recounts tales from her experiences before arriving at Watertower Elementary to her new classmates and endearing teacher, Mrs. Pidgeon, who listen with rapture. I truly loved reading this one aloud to my classes every year.
