“Kids will recognize bits of themselves in Pookins . . . an amusing, hard-edged heroine.” —Booklist
Pookins always gets her way. If she doesn't, she makes faces, she throws apples, and she yells very loudly! But when Pookins finds a magic gnome who grants her three wishes, she hastily wishes to be a flower. Powerless to do anything
, she realizes that her way may not be the best way, and that a bit of empathy for the gnome might set things right. This new addition to the Laugh-Along Lessons series focuses on the importance of being considerate.
Includes parent/teacher discussion guide and downloadable audio!
