Absolutely. In fact this is a story my nearly 8 year old chooses to listen to many nights before falling asleep.
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.
Yes. We listened to it while traveling and it kept us entertained as the miles flew by.
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!
My kids really enjoyed listening, and when the story was done, they realized they had effortlessly learned a lot about story telling. Their only complaint was that it was not longer.
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!"
