Gooney Bird also shares a few challenging vocabulary words with her class and obtains dictionaries for every class member so they can check out the meaning of new words.
Mrs. Pidgeon's class also needs a room mother. But with all the children's parents otherwise occupied, no parents are prepared to bring cupcakes to the Thanksgiving pageant. Gooney Bird promises to find a room mother if she is given the lead in the Thanksgiving pageant. There is also another rule: The room mother will remain incognito.
The suspense builds as we wait to learn if the Thanksgiving pageant is a success and who is the mysterious room mother.
Gooney Bird and the Room Mother is a charming book that 6-to-10-year-olds will read again and again. Gooney Bird is comical; her teacher is every child's dream teacher. And the room mother, well you'll have to read the book to learn about the room mother.
When I asked my daughter if she used the Kindle dictionary to look up any words that she didn't know, she told me that she didn't need to, because all of the hard words' definitions were explained to Gooney Bird's class as part of the story! Hopefully the book will have the added benefit of increasing her vocabulary!
The book was very funny.
I would recommend this book. It's a must read for all Lois Lowry Fans.
