Book for Kids we Recommend: Lucky Days with Mr. and Mrs. Green

We love reading short stories that are enjoyable for the whole family.  That’s why Lucky Days with Mr. and Mrs. Green by Keith Baker  is a great book for kids we recommend. Our friends at Sweet on Books explain why:

What You Need to Know:
• This is the third in a series of four books about Mr. and Mrs. Green, but while it is a series, it does not have to be read in order.
• The books are set up as 3 inter-related, but not continuous, short stories, which can be read in any order.
• Mr. and Mrs. Green’s relationship is a very positive example of a warm, caring and respectful friendship.
• Your early reader will thoroughly enjoy these clever alligators and their tales, written simply and directly, with amusing illustrations.

Background:
Mr. and Mrs. Green are a couple of adventure-seeking alligators. They enjoy each other very much and have many wild experiences together. The countless mini-lessons in math, cooperation, and optimism weaved throughout each story, makes every Mr. and Mrs. Green book a multi-layered learning experience, without being burdensome. To the young reader, they will just be enjoyable stories with really funny and appealing alligator characters.

Summary:
In this volume, there are three more short stories; Lost and Found, Gumballs and The Talent Show. In Lost and Found, Mr. Green becomes a detective searching for Mrs. Green’s lost pearls and watch, which they find. In Gumballs, Mr. Green estimates the amount of gumballs in the gumball-guessing contest and wins all 7, 917 gumballs. In The Talent Show, Mrs. Green helps Mr. Green find his inspiration and he ends up performing fantastically in the talent show, naturally (this is Lucky Days with Mr. and Mrs. Green, after all).
