Published: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers - October 4th, 2016

The second book by this dynamic duo that features real animals on a Vermont Farm. Little Finn is born too early and too weak to stay in the cold, late-winter barn so Farmer John brings him home where he's nurtured and taught how to drink from a bottle by Maisie Grace, the fabulous border collie puppy. Soon Finn is strong enough to join his barnyard friends, but it's a big, scary world out there! With a great display of encouragement from the other animals, Finn begins to feel brave, empowered and completely loved. Warning: there's so much genuine compassion and kindness on each and every page, it may make you tear up. The photo illustrations are perfection and you're even treated to a Behind the Scenes look at farm life and The True Story of Finn. ~ Reviewed by Gail Cosgriff

I am building a super-secret tree fort!
It will have a rope ladder and walkie-talkies and it will be made of candy!
I will stand in the crows nest and count the pirate ships that pass by. There's even a basket so you can send snacks up to me. Wish I could tell you more about it but it's a secret...
Great sister story that any older sibling will relate to! ~ Reviewed by Leah Moore

Simple and sweet, Doi's lovely book captures the just-rightness of a child's day out. When Chirra and Chirri go for a bike ride, they find that the forest world not only welcomes the woodland animals, but that it has a place for them, too! What will they choose to drink at the forest cafe? What sandwich and jam will they pick from the forest bakery? These are Chirri and Chirra's most pressing concerns. Magical. ~Reviewed by Aubrey Restifo
