Gina From Siberia. Jane Bernstein; Charlotte Glynn

5 of 5 stars

Due out in the Fall, Gina From Siberia is an adorable book of delightful cartoon illustrations of the tale of Gina. She is an intelligent Wire Haired Terrier and she knows how to communicate well with others.

What's incredible about Gina From Siberia is that this would be an excellent tool for teaching children the importance of accepting the inevitabilities of life, such as long distance travel and learning to thrive in a new environment.
