Getting Near to Baby By Audrey Couloumbis
Getting Near To Baby is a poignant, tender
novel, winner of the 2000 Newberry Honor Medal, and one of the first novels we
have come upon that is written from the perspective of an older child. This is
a fictional story of Willa Jo and her younger sister in the aftermath of their
baby sister’s death, their mother’s heavy grief, and the healing and hope that
springs forth from an unplanned climb onto the roof. A recommended read for
ages 10 and up, and for adults looking for insight into their older children.
