Humorous books for young readers often do not encourage higher thinking and thoughtful discussion about complex themes. Author Liz Cooper, a former teacher and school system reading supervisor, seeks to do just that with her new book, “Granny’s Teeth,” a quirky collection of tales for children and adults.

After the first tale in the book, titled “Francois and the Tide,” won a top-ten award as a standalone children’s book, friends, family and fellow writers encouraged Cooper to write more material; thus, she decided to compile more of her own short stories. The book also contains questions and activities to engage children’s minds and incite complex discussions.

“Not only did I want this book to be entertaining,” said Cooper, “but I also wanted children and adults to have the chance to engage in meaningful conversations with one another.”

“Granny’s Teeth” has already been receiving critical praises from reviewers:

“Anyone who has ever struggled to help a young child find meaning in the words they read will find the information presented here to be of great value.” – Clarion Review

“A fine work that should keep young readers engaged with fun and amusing subjects while providing a foundation for thoughtful reading practices.” – Kirkus Review

“Granny’s Teeth” is sure to entertain children and adults, as well as encourage development of critical thinking and reading skills. To learn more please visit LizCooperAuthor.com.
