A Clearing in the Wild by Jane Kirkpatrick
A Clearing in the Wild

Gayle, August 14, 2007

A Clearing In The Wild is the beautifully written true story about a woman who longed for her voice to be heard in a community where women were to be silent and invisible. Jane Kirkpatrick ably conveys Emma's "kicking against the goads" of the community that confines her while seeking to find her place in the community and the world.

Where Is the Green Sheep? by Mem Fox
Where Is the Green Sheep?

Gayle, July 25, 2007

We first got this book out of the local library; we renewed it many times as it's a hit; adorable illustrations and the ever-present simple, yet poignant words of Mem Fox. On a personal note, my son could "read" this book at 3 years old. He now wants to own his own copy, so now at 4 he can read it to his little sister!

He's Got the Whole World in His Hands by Kadir Nelson
He's Got the Whole World in His Hands

Gayle, May 25, 2006

Originally found in our local library, this book has become a bedtime ritual. The whole family sits on my 3 year old son's bed, and sings the song, turning the pages as we go. The artwork is beautiful and engaging. and our son finds something new to talk about each night. He especially loves the last page with the music and child-like drawing.
