Secrets at Sea by Richard Peck!
The Mom read Secrets at Sea aloud to The Sisters and each of us enjoyed this new book by Richard Peck for myriad reasons. Imagine: the mice put on clothes when they get home and take them off when they go out into human territory. The ultimate goal is to keep their truth --their brilliance-- hidden, revealing it only to the most deserving humans. As they venture out into the world, they have to survive and they do, with style. They do more than survive though, they thrive. And they teach us that it never hurts to want something more and to trust that taking care of yourself is always a good idea.
