Andrea’s Staff Picks

by Carrie
"Lincoln and His Boys" “A very personable look at Abraham Lincoln’s role as a father. Based on historical facts. And with lovely illustrations.”
"The Yellow Tutu" “A creative little girl overcomes peer pressure and makes a new friend. Marvelous illustrations.”
"The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" “Interesting story, well-developed, likable characters. I learned about a new facet of World War II history.”
"The Leanin' Dog" “A sweet, heart-wrenching story about an Appalachian girl–with a happy ending!”
"David Copperfield" “Every winter I try to read a classic. I love the characters in this one. It is also somewhat autobiographical.”
