How to Steal a Dog book

Share A Book 2017!

On February 16th, the Cleveland kicked off its annual Share A Book Read Aloud Program. We will be reading Sharon Creech's "Ruby Holler".

Goodreads describes "Ruby Holler": "Trouble twins" Dallas and Florida are orphans who have given up believing there is such a thing as a loving home. Tiller and Sairy are an eccentric older couple who live in the beautiful, mysterious Ruby Holler, but they are restless for one more big adventure. When they invite the twins to join them on their journeys, they first must all stay together in the Holler, and the magic of the place takes over. Two pairs of lives grow closer and are changed forever."
