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.
Here are chapters three, four, and five of Baby Island, by Carol Ryrie Brink. After a wild night, Mary and Jean find themselves on the sandy shores of a beautiful desert island, Baby Island! Now come the important tasks of securing the boat, building a shelter, and finding fresh water. In and around these necessary responsibilities are the regular chores of feeding and bathing the babies, and keeping them entertained.
Now, sit back, relax, and listen to this story come to life!
