This is a beautiful, realistic story of what a fox does when they are out in the wild. Soft, rhyming text and bright rich color to the artwork combine to make a lovely story about a winter’s day and the adventures (and misadventures) on fox has. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette


Profound Reads- Part One

Jack Kelly Event

Naturally folks who work at a bookstore are quite serious about reading. It comes with the territory and, with access to all those books and the need to be knowledgeable about those books, Northshire staff read a lot of them. I recently presented Bookstore staff with the question “What is the most profound book you’ve ever read?” The results were highly individualized with no overlap to speak of. Here are some of the picks, with another round to follow soon...
