Gooney Bird Greene | [Lois Lowry]

Gooney Bird Greene

There's never been anyone like Gooney Bird Greene at Watertower Elementary School. What other new kid comes to school wearing pajamas and cowboy boots one day and a polka-dot t-shirt and tutu on another? Gooney Bird has to sit right smack in the middle of the class because she likes to be in the middle of everything. She is the star of story time and keeps her teacher and classmates on the edge of their seats with her absolutely true stories. But what about her classmates?

    "What A Fun Way To Learn How To Tell A Story!"
    Would you listen to Gooney Bird Greene again? Why?

    Absolutely. In fact this is a story my nearly 8 year old chooses to listen to many nights before falling asleep.


    Have you listened to any of Lee Adams’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't, but I would certainly be willing to. The performance for this book is excellent and makes it fantastic. This is a book I'd prefer to listen to than to read to myself.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. We listened to it while traveling and it kept us entertained as the miles flew by.


    Any additional comments?

    My kids laughed out loud to Gooney Bird Greene's antics and stories. As a mom I was cheering as I heard her demonstrate telling and interesting story. What a fantastic way to teach creative writing!

    "Great Story, Great Narrator"

    Lee Adams is perfect for this novel. Gooney Bird kept my kids happy on a sixteen-hour car trip. We can't wait to listen to more of Gooney Bird's "absolutely, true stories!"
