Good Thing You're Not an Octopus!

Illustrated by Maggie Smith
Audience: Preschool - Preschool

With cheerful pictures that communicate a gentle tone, this picture book takes the reader through a number of daily tasks that a little boy doesn't enjoy. 'You don't like to get dressed in the morning? It's a good thing you're not an octopus. If you were an octopus, you would have eight legs to put in your pants!' For each task, there is a different animal, such as a shark for the unhappy teeth brusher ('If you were a shark, you could have two hundred teeth to brush!'). Including various routine daily tasks, this tale could be fun to share with a child who is resistant to activities like getting dressed, taking naps, or riding in car seats.

Gooney Bird Greene needs to be in the center of everything, from her seat in the classroom, to conversations, and of course, in telling 'absolutely true' stories. She is a very unusual girl from a faraway place who wears pajamas and cowboy boots and that is only the beginning of her second grade adventures at Watertower Elementary School. This is the first book about Gooney Bird. Follows her adventures in Gooney Bird and the Room Mother, Gooney the Fabulous, and Gooney Bird is so Absurd.
