Last week I mentioned Smoky Night and River Friendly, River Wild as a pair of books that might help the picture-book set make sense of/find hope in the situation on the Gulf Coast. (Both have gone over well at my house.)

Today, Cynthia Leitich Smith discusses another book that seems appropriate: The Moon Came Down On Milk Street. I haven’t read this one yet — when I first heard about it several months ago, the library didn’t have a copy, but now I’m going to try to find it again.
