(WTNH) - Katie Davis shows us some great summer reads for kids and teens.
Here is what Katie brought on the show:
Julia's Kitchen, by Brenda Ferber
A middle grade novel about a girl trying to deal with the death of her mother and sister in a house fire.
Ish, written and illustrated by Peter Reynolds
A creative spirit learns that thinking "ish-ly" is far more wonderful than "getting it right" in this gentle fable.
The Dreamer, by Pam Munoz Ryan, illustrated by Peter Sis (teen readers)
This moving story about the birth of an artist is also a celebration of childhood, imagination, and the strength of the creative spirit. Ryan weaves sound poems and thought-provoking questions into her exquisitely crafted prose while Ss's delicate drawings transport readers to the lushness of the Chilean rainforest. Illustrations.
