This is Sadie (Board book)
On Our Shelves Now
Now in board book, the beloved story about a little girl with a big imagination from the award-winning team of Sara O'Leary and Julie Morstad.
Sadie is a little girl with a big imagination. She has been a girl who lived under
the sea and a boy raised by wolves. She has had adventures in wonderland and
visited the world of fairytales. She whispers to the dresses in her closet and talks
to birds in the treetops. She has wings that take her anywhere she wants to go, but
that always bring her home again. She likes to make things -- boats out of boxes
and castles out of cushions. But more than anything Sadie likes stories, because
you can make them from nothing at all. For Sadie, the world is so full of wonderful
possibilities...This is Sadie, and this is her story.
