(virtually or otherwise), the ones with all the nine- and ten-star ratings were carefully curated and collected in a handy list? Well, all we can say is...KEEP READING!

Lorraine by Ketch Secor, Higgins Bond (Illustrator)This lyrical tale written by Ketch Secor along with the photo-realistic illustrations of Higgins Bond not only entertains young readers, but also encourages them to find their inner strength.

When a mischievous crow hides all the shiny things in her life (including her pennywhistle), Lorraine is forced to find her inner voice and create music to chase her worries away.

Higgins Bond's illustrations are the perfect accompaniment for the lyrical tale that is sure to become a favored family read aloud.

Lorraine by Ketch Secor, Higgins Bond (Illustrator) ($17.99*, Sourcebooks Jabberwocky), recommended by The Reading Rock, Dickson, TN.
