Gooney Bird and the Room Mother
Mrs. Pidgeon's second grade classroom is in the midst of chaos. The Thanksgiving pageant is coming up. They don't yet have a room mother, and the principal is becoming impatient. Who's right smack in the middle of everything? Who comes to the rescue? Gooney Bird Greene, of course!
And who is to become the class room mother?
“I’ll write it down,” Gooney Bird Greene said. She went to the board and picked up the chalk. “Class,” she said, “get out your dictionaries.” She wrote a word very carefully on the board, at the end of the list.
The word she wrote was INCOGNITO.
“This is our room mother’s name,” she said.
