What You Need to Know:
• This is the fourth in a series of four books about Mr. and Mrs. Green, but while it is a series, it does not have to be
  read in order.
• The books are set up as 3 inter-related, but not continuous, short stories, that can be read in any order.
• Mr. and Mrs. Green's relationship is a very positive example of a warm, caring and respectful friendship.
• Your early reader will thoroughly enjoy these clever alligators and their tales, written simply and directly, with
   amusing illustrations. 
Sweet Series Background:
Mr. and Mrs. Green are a couple of adventure-seeking alligators. They enjoy each other very much and have many wild experiences together. The countless mini-lessons in math, cooperation, and optimism weaved throughout each story, makes every Mr. and Mrs. Green book a multi-layered learning experience, without being burdensome. To the young reader, they will just be enjoyable stories with really funny and appealing alligator characters. 
Sweet Book Summary:
This installment of Mr. and Mrs. Green has all the makings of what we have come to love about this series. It has lively and colorful illustrations; the sweet, respectful example of a relationship between two companions (Mr. and Mrs. Green); and adventurous, comical plots that keep the youngest reader listening or the slightly older reader interested in reading on their own.
,br> In the first of the three short stories, Magic Tricks, Mr. Green comically fumbles his way through a couple of magic tricks, including making Mrs. Green disappear without quite knowing how to get her back! Intertwined are math lessons, including time-telling, counting and directionality (clockwise and counter-clockwise) In the second story, Cookies, Mr. and Mrs. Green debate double-double-doubling Mr. Green's favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. Finally, in the third story, Inventions, Mr. and Mrs. Green invent two very useful things to help each other do their favorite things: eating and being together! This series is to be treasured.
