“Mr. Hocklenutty was not happy.
His glasses were filthy dirty. Bent. Twisted. And broken.
They broke when Mr. Hocklenutty fell. ”
That’s how this modern fable begins. By the end of the story old Mr. Hocklenutty is quite happy and feels young again. Are the “magic glasses” responsible for his newfound “youth” or is it something a little more tangible than magic?
This story was “dreamed up” with some adorable first graders and uniquely illustrated with 13 gifted and talented 4th graders from Pennsauken, NJ. In addition to being great kids, their enthusiasm to “do and learn” promises to make them awesome adults.
First through 4th graders can enjoy this story on its own, but we’ll bet you a delicious EisenCream cone that they’ll appreciate it even more when it’s read with them by a grandfather or grandmother who cherishes their “kidness.”
This is an interactive book with a comprehension/vocabulary quiz. It's extremely kid friendly and often inspires children to want to write and publish their own book. For more visit: www.doandyouwilllearn.com
