“Kids will recognize bits of themselves in Pookins . . . an amusing, hard-edged heroine.” —Booklist
Pookins always gets her way. If she doesn't, she makes faces, she throws apples, and she yells very loudly! But when Pookins finds a magic gnome who grants her three wishes, she hastily wishes to be a flower. Powerless to do anything, she realizes that her way may not be the best way, and that a bit of empathy for the gnome might set things right. This new addition to the Laugh-Along Lessons series focuses on the importance of being considerate.
Includes parent/teacher discussion guide and downloadable audio!

This book is about a little girl who gets everything she asks for. Soon the little girl learns to be careful what you wish for. This book is very humorous. This is good for young children because it shows that getting everything you want is not always a good thing. (Illustrated by Lynn Munsinger)
