5.5

Another beautiful story by Patricia Polacco, and illustrated in her signature style. One little girl’s love of reading allows her to help her entire community with their everyday struggles as well as inspiring them to love books as much as she does. The sense of community when Stella loses her precious library to a twister is touching and seems to bring the message of caring full circle.
