Our house loves a middle reader quest book: Madeline L’Engle, Rick Riordan, Land of Stories. I stumbled across the audiobook of Water Bears by Kim Baker when searching for Poly Horvath audiobooks. Water Bears is charming, warm, and very well read by narrator Ozzie Rodriguez. So well read, in fact, we tracked down other Ozzie Rodriguez narrations and are now listening to Storm Runner, J.C. Cervantes. If you are a fan of quirky, outsider kids finding their strength, appreciating their Latino heritage, and recognizing cherished friendships, this is the book for you!
