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 Penguin Random House Publishing Company.
Here is the final installment of The Animal Family, by Randall Jarrell. One day after a storm, the lynx finds something surprising and amazing. He and the bear work together to bring this new discovery back to the little house at the edge of the meadow. What he found changes the lives of the hunter and the mermaid forever!
Now sit back, relax, and listen to this story come to life.
