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 nine, ten, and eleven of Baby Island, by Carol Ryrie Brink. Mary and Jean meet their neighbor, the grumpy Mr. Peterkin. He has goats, and that means milk for the babies! But oh, he is a very grumpy man! Not only that, but he tells terrible fibs about his missing toe. Mary and Jean do their best to reform him, but maybe he just can’t be changed.

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