Kali's Story: An Orphaned Polar Bear Rescue


Kali's Story: An Orphaned Polar Bear Rescue

Follow the rescue of orphaned polar bear Kali (pronounced Cully) from the Inupiat village of Kali (Point Lay in English) to the Alaska Zoo in Anchorage to his new home at the Buffalo Zoo in New York with Luna, a female polar bear. This photographic journey beautifully captures the remarkable development of the cub, who initially drinks from a baby bottle, sucks his paw for comfort, and sleeps with a “blankie” as he rapidly grows into the largest land carnivore on earth.

Eva and Sadie and the Worst Haircut EVER!


Eva and Sadie and the Worst Haircut EVER!

Meet Eva and Sadie in debut picture book author Jeff Cohen's Eva and Sadie and the Worst Haircut EVER! The book was inspired by the viral recording of NPR reporter Jeff interviewing his two little girls explaining the worst haircut ever. When big sister Sadie notices Eva's hair is just too long and getting out of control, she decides to take matters into her own hands. When the haircut is over and there's a pile of hair on the floor, Sadie realizes she may have done something wrong. What will Eva and Sadie's parents say? Will they be able to fix the worst haircut ever? With beautiful illustrations from Elanna Allen, young readers will love reading a story based on a real-life sister act! In the same vein as Fancy Nancy, the fun and creativity of sibling relationships shine through in this sweet tale of cutting hair and learning lessons.

Editorial Reviews
       From School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—Sadie's little sister Eva has long curly blond tresses "down to her tush" (Sadie's own mop is short, straight, and brown). No braids or pigtails can tame Eva's hair, and it has never been cut before. Sadie decides to "help" by grabbing their mom's scissors and giving Eva a haircut, with predictably dreadful results. She tries to hide the evidence from their parents but eventually admits to the misdeed after Eva tells on her, promising not to do it again. Allen's playful pencil, watercolor, and digital illustrations perfectly capture the wildness of Eva's hair and the gentle humor of the story. Based on a real-life haircutting incident with Cohen's young daughters, this story will resonate with many young readers, though hopefully not inspire them to get into their own haircutting shenanigans.—Yelena Alekseyeva-Popova, formerly at Chappaqua Library, NY

From the Back Cover
Meet Eva and Sadie, two sisters with big personalities! When big sister Sadie notices that Eva's hair is just too long and getting out of control, she decides to take matters into her own hands. When the haircut is over and there's a pile of hair on the floor, Sadie realizes she may have done something wrong. What will Eva and Sadie's parents say? Will they be able to fix the worst haircut ever?

In this hilariously sweet tale of cutting hair, Eva gets a new hairdo and Sadie realizes that it's okay to make mistakes as long as you learn not to make the same one again.
