Baby by Patricia MacLachlan

$ 3.99 $ 2.75

by Patricia MacLachlan

Publisher's Weekly described this story of a family that takes in an abandoned baby as "lean and lyrical," adding that the Newbery Medalist "gracefully entwines past and present." 

In the story, 12-year-old Larkin and her family welcome Sophie (who is literally left in a basket in their driveway) into their home, caring for her and teaching her games and new words. They come to love this baby as their own, all the while knowing that eventually Sophie's mother will return one day to take her from them.
