The Road Home by Katie Cotton - OPTIONAL

Cotton, Katie The Road Home, PICTURE BOOK. Abrams. 2017. $15.95. Content: G. 

The road of life is wild and unpredictable. Rabbits flee from wolves and find safety in their burrows. Wolves in turn then try to fight off their hunger and find their den is a sanctuary. All loving parents do their best to help their children through this sometimes tumultuous life giving them safety at home. 

This is a touching story with unique illustrations. There are many parallels and life lessons readers can draw from this story. Parents and home should protect us and help us feel safe. There is a deep and loving bond between parent and child whether in the wild or not.
