Read by Mrs. Michalowski. I can't believe it's over - but guess what. It's not!
If your heart is broken, you can heal it quick by getting a copy of The Wild Robot Escapes, and reading this thrilling, wonderful sequel to this fantastic book.
And more good news: a 3rd book, The Wild Robot Protects, is due out in Summer 2023.

Welcome to our 8th annual One School One Book.
This story is probably my personal favorite so far. Peter Brown gives us a tale of technology, nature, getting in touch with your wild side, being a parent, being a child, learning to listen, learning to speak, feeling empathy, practicing patience, fighting for those you love, and finding out why sacrifice - the kind that hurts - is so important. The Wild Robot is just...everything. Sigh.
I hope you read and listen as a family or with your SJC friends, and it makes these long, cold winter nights a little warmer and sweeter.
Enjoy! -Mrs. M

It's been an honor and a delight to read straight through all seven of the Harry Potter books. It began on in mid-March 2020 and it ends, fittingly I think, on Christmas Day, 2020. I hope listening has brought you as much comfort and joy as reading brought to me, in this very strange and uncertain year. Taking refuge in reading can help you survive and thrive, even in the most difficult days. Never stop reading and listening to stories, whatever your age.
THANK YOU for going on this journey with me. And thank you to JK Rowling for the precious gift of Harry Potter.
