Gooney Bird: On the Map is no exception. In this installment, Gooney and her classmates are learning about the different states and spend their time making a map of the U.S. outside in an area of the school playground that has been set aside for them. Three of her classmates continue to discuss their winter vacation plans - something that they learn is called gloating. Gooney continues to be a favorite in our household. Even my fourth grade daughter was excited when I opened this package, bringing back happy memories of previous Gooney books she has read.
