Welcome to Stories Come to Life. I am your host, Kathryn Lopez Luker. During this time of Covid, many people aren’t able to use the library in the same way as in the past. To help bring more stories to more readers, many publishing companies are allowing books that are normally unavailable for copyright reasons to be read out loud and shared with others until December 31, 2021. The stories that fall under that special permission will all be taken down on that date, so listen now, while they’re available! Today’s story is shared with permission of Simon and Schuster Publishing Company. 

When the steamship they are traveling on to join their father in Australia begins to sink, resourceful Mary Wallace, and her sister, Jean, rescue the four babies on board! Now they are floating in an open boat, somewhere in the Pacific, hoping to land on one of the hundreds of islands that must be out there. Here are the first chapters of Baby Island, by Carol Ryrie Brink.

Now, sit back, relax, and listen to this story come to life!
