Read Across America Picks - Day 2

by Susan Dougherty, NJLA Board Member

With Read Across America swiftly approaching, the NJLA Board is highlighting stories that you can share with children in classrooms or at home. Here's our second pick, A Sled for Gabo by Emma Otheguy. It's a wonderful story for winter.

Newly arrived in town, Gabo and his family are not quite ready for the snow that falls and brings children out to the sledding hill. Gabo is much too shy to ask them for a turn on their sleds. But, before long Gabo has a new friend and a makeshift sled that they ride down the hill, whooping all the way. A wonderful companion book for The Snowy Day.
