Gray, cold January got you down? Read a story with a setting that mirrors our own, yet ends on a note of hope, like the first sunny, 40 degree day after a long winter.
From The Magician's Elephant by Kate DiCamillo:
The city of Baltese felt as if it were under siege - not by a foreign army, but by the weather. No one could recall a winter so thoroughly, uniformly gray. Where was the sun? Would it ever shine again? And if the sun was not going to shine, then could it not at least snow? Something, anything!Find this captivating book in our children's collection.
