Red Knit Cap Girl to the Rescue!!

by Naoko Stoop

Although children will not make the connection between a polar bear cub floating away from his family on a small chunk of ice and global warming, they will be mesmerized by the story of a young girl coming to his rescue.   Red Knit Cap Girl is the ultimate super hero – ready to spring into action and do what needs to be done.  That the author is an artist is evident in this beautifully illustrated story.  Pick it up for the artwork, stay for the story!
