In this episode of Brightly Storytime, our read-aloud video series for kids, we’re reading The Stray by Molly Ruttan. Young readers will delight in this story about a family that tries to turn a stray they find into a pet, but it’s just not working. Could this critter just be lost and looking for its family? Pay close attention to the illustrations for a surprisingly out-of-this-world twist.
