“A collection of ‘quirky rhyming tales’ that occasionally recall Shel Silverstein, Granny’s Teeth adds in an educational component with questions for reader discussion – but it’s also just plain fun.” - Blue Ink Review
WASHINGTON (PRWEB) January 23, 2018
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:
