Bear loves being part of his adopted family, but what will he do now that winter is coming? Try as he might, he just can't keep his eyes open, but Mama Duck and the siblings reassure him they will keep him in the loop (even though he'll be fast asleep). This is the perfect read-aloud for little ones who tend to fight the urge to go to bed! The illustrations are sweet and funny--and who can resist bears in flotation devices and tap-dancing ducklings? Our resident storyteller, Miss Angela, also gives this book her seal of approval! -- Barb (RBB Staff)
This is historical fiction at its best. Set in East Prussia during WWII, Salt to the Sea tells the story of four young refugees and their journey to what they hope will be a better life. It is also the story of the biggest, yet mostly unheard of, maritime disaster--the sinking of the Wilhelm Gustloff. A beautifully written and powerful story about a fascinating and tragic moment in history. -- Holly (RBB Staff)
