Gooney Bird Greene returns for more adventures in this chapter-book series from Newbery Medalwinner Lois Lowry, with Middy Thomass black-and-white illustrations bringing the classroom to life throughout.
Mrs. Pidgeons second grade class has a lot to celebrate in February: presidents birthdays, Valentines Day, and school vacation. Of course, the students are talking about their awesome vacation plans every chance they get. It can be hard to focus on subtraction problems when youre heading to Hawaii or Florida in seventeen minus seven days!
But most of the class (twelve minus three of them, in fact) will be staying home during vacation. Can Gooney Bird Greene keep spirits up while everyone is feeling down? Gooney Bird has a great idea that sends her classmates and her on a snowy spin through U.S. history and geography!
