Wendell Berry is one of my favorite authors. I read this lovely little book of his, Whitefoot: A Story From the Center of the World, which was beautifully illustrated by Davis Te Selle, and can’t wait to read it aloud to my second graders. I’m sure they will enjoy it as much as I did. It’s a simple story, beautifully told and illustrated, about a little mouse who is swept away from home during a spring flood. A lovely read.
