Red Kayak by Priscilla Cummings

 Red Kayak by Priscilla Cummings was published in 2004 and is the first book of a three book companion set. I read the second book, The Journey Back, several years ago, so when I spotted Red Kayak in a little free library, I scooped it up. 

Brady Parks, the main character, is hailed as hero when he rescues a small boy from the waters of the Chesapeake Bay, but he makes a discovery that puts all that he did in question. 

Brady and his friends, Digger and J.T. are close, but their friendship may not survive the poor choices that are made. Brady keeps his discovery a secret, but he must choose between what he knows is right and his friends. 

This story shows how important it is not act on impulse, but to think things through, take a breath, even when anger takes control. The consequences of rash actions can often haunt us and others for a lifetime. 

The Cope Family, who had twins in our NICU, sent this selection of quality books for the babies at our hospital. Thank you so very much!
Link to our NICU book registry
 to donate books to babies in the newborn intensive care unit so their parents can read to them while they grow. You can also donate gently used books to our project by sending them to me or to Angie. Email me for a mailing address. We can use both English and Spanish books. If you have a graduate of the NICU, or if you have a baby whose life you would like to honor by donating books to this project, let me know, and I can make a book plate with their name for the books you donate.

Read to a child today even if that child is you.
