Gooney the Fabulous by Lois Lowry
Gooney Bird Greene is an eccentric second grader in Mrs. Pidgeon's class. When the class is learning about fables, Gooney Bird suggests that everyone in the class write their own fable to share with the class.
What I Thought:
Such a neat book! This is my first experience with Gooney Bird and definitely won't be my last! I loved Gooney Bird and all of her classmates, which play an important role in this book. This book would be a great read aloud for an elementary school class and incorporate their own lesson of fables right along with the story. The readers of this book get to read each of the students fables and learn right along with Mrs. Pidgeon's class.
