This is my last review of Susan Meddaugh’s books for a while. Click here for the first post about Susan Meddaugh. Just Teenie caught my attention because someone near and dear to me was called “Teenie” most of her life. You know who you are! <giggle>
Susan Meddaugh’s picture book Just Teenie was published by Houghton Mifflin in 2006. Justine had a BIG problem. She was so small that she missed out on most of life’s joys and opportunities. I can relate. When I was in elementary school I had the same problem, though not quite as extreme as Justine.
Her tiny size garnered for her the nickname Teenie.
Teenie happened upon a fortune teller who could grant wishes. THIS was her chance, she thought. But her wish wasn’t granted the way she expected at all. Her adventures because of this wish are cute and silly, but not permanent—you think.
If you know a kid who wants to change on the outside, but also needs a big change on the inside, you can share Just Teenie with him or her. Maybe figuring out this mystery might help your young one to figure out what she or he REALLY wants to change.
Have fun, and keep sharing picture books with the kids you love!
