Episode 77: A Snake Falls to Earth by Darcie Little Badger
Y’all, we’re excited to bring you this episode about A Snake Falls to Earth by Darcie Little Badger, a (relatively) newly minted Newberry Award honor winner!!
Worlds collide when a group of animal spirits (including a cottonmouth snake, a pair of coyote twins, a Cooper’s hawk, and a magpie) crosses over to the human world in order to save their wee toad friend from death/extinction. Young human Nina and her family based in South Texas are inextricably tied up in this multi-species adventure.
No show notes, so go pick up this book from your library instead! As Jessie notes in the episode, since it’s a Newberry honor, many libraries will have numerous copies of this title – sometimes unlimited audiobooks available. Go forth and read/listen!
