Gooney Bird Greene


Since you’ve surely got that lovely back-to-school task of overseeing your child’s nightly reading log (insert sarcasm here)...thought I’d repost a favorite book that won’t put parents or kids to sleep and is perfect for kicking off a new school year. 

Gooney Bird Greene is a lovable, eccentric second-grader known for her inventive, creative, and absolutely true stories. She just moved into town and her classmates are eager to get to know her and hear of her tall tales and wild adventures. Are they all true? Well, that’s just for you the reader to decide for yourself. Lois Lowry- as always- delivers. This is the first in a series of four—but I’m partial to the first. Happy reading!
