Kirkus Recommendation for Dolphin SOS





"Distress gives way to relief in this you-are-there tale for young readers and listeners who enjoy real-life animal encounters." 


Aesop's Fables is one of Bank Street College's Best Books of 2014



"Stunning art enhances this telling and retelling of the famous stories. Modern morals accompany each tale. A good choice for intergenerational sharing."




Fantastic Reviews from Shelley Sommer's Blog



What I really like about this story is its message about water. Our younger students learn about the fundamental needs that all people share. Anna Carries Water is a book teachers could use to introduce a lesson about the importance of water to everyone’s daily life.




 This book  has everything students like most in a story: animals, kids as heroes, and a happy ending. The illustrations are crisp and elegant.




 This book would be an excellent gift for kids who enjoy reading Greek myths. 



 This sweet elegiac story about a boy and a dog growing older together . . . is an evocation of the special relationship many of us have had with our animal friends.

I am looking forward to sharing all of these books with our students. They reminded me to pay closer attention to the excellent books being published north of the border.
