The Sounds of Sleep

Need some soothing melodies to lull your little one to sleep?  Why not check out a few of our lullaby CDs?  We have quite a large collection, and, since they are shelved together, they're easy to find.  Here are just a few examples of the lullaby albums available in the Kid Zone.

Stella by Starlight by Draper

That's right, folks!  Sharon M. Draper, author of Out of My Mind and Tears of a Tiger, has a new book out this week.  I checked out Hoover's copy, but I'll read it quickly.  I promise!  Here's a snippet to tide you over while you wait.

Stella by Starlight
Stella lives in the segregated South—in Bumblebee, North Carolina, to be exact about it. Some stores she can go into. Some stores she can’t. Some folks are right pleasant. Others are a lot less so. To Stella, it sort of evens out, and heck, the Klan hasn’t bothered them for years. But one late night, later than she should ever be up, much less wandering around outside, Stella and her little brother see something they’re never supposed to see, something that is the first flicker of change to come, unwelcome change by any stretch of the imagination. As Stella’s community—her world—is upended, she decides to fight fire with fire. And she learns that ashes don’t necessarily signify an end.
