ANNAPOLIS, Md. (PRWEB) January 17, 2018
Drawing upon her experience as a former teacher and school system reading supervisor, Liz Cooper wrote the short story collection, “Granny’s Teeth: A Collection of Quirky Rhyming Tales” (published by Archway Publishing), about “ordinary kids on extraordinary adventures” intended to make readers laugh and practice critical thinking skills.
Whether staying awake all night talking to a set of chatty dentures or watching Grandpa’s hair fly away, the young characters in the 15 stories find “unusual solutions to life’s unexpected events.” The storylines are simple, yet the themes are “surprisingly complex.” There is one question posed at the end of each tale with additional “Let’s Talk About It” questions, discussion starters and research ideas in the back of the book for “digging deeper.”
“The storylines are simple and funny, but the themes are surprisingly complex,” Cooper says, adding, “This book is designed for adults and their young readers to enjoy together while practicing reading comprehension skills that will last a lifetime.”
