It's all about the pets!
Do you have a pet lover in your home that's just over the moon about animals like I do? My daughter is one of those kids that just loves animals, cats to be more precise. If it were up to her we would adopt every cat in the shelter every time we are there. She just can't get enough of playing with them. We actually have eight cats right now and all but one of them came from a shelter. They all have their own unique personalities just like little people. And the three that live inside the house even act like people sitting on chairs and strutting around demanding dinner if it's not out when they are hungry.
So as you can imagine when these two books arrived full of stories about pets (and cats) she was so excited. She actually sat right down and started reading me stories out of the Cat Tales book she was so interested in finding out what it was all about. I love seeing her enthusiasm for animals and providing her with books like these to help keep that alive is so worth it. She's probably read the entire cat book at least twice and is on her second time for the Pet Rescues book. I think she finds something new in them each time she reads them, which is awesome if you ask me. She's learned many things from them and can't wait to grow up and rescue pets herself.
125 Pet Rescues, From Pound to Palace: Homeless Pets Made Happy (ages 8-12, $12.99) is a collection of laugh-out-loud and heartwarming stories of animals in need who went on to become pampered pets. Just like the pit bulls featured on pages 16 & 17, though, don’t judge this book by its cover. The 125 vignettes of pets that have been rescued provides eye-opening insight into the power of compassion and kindness and the amazingly positive impact that rescuing a dog, cat, pig, horse or even a goat can have on the humans that open their hearts and their homes to them. 125 Pet Rescues has been created in cooperation with the Best Friends Animal Society whose mission is to bring about a time when there are no more homeless pets. Featuring a forward by Best Friends CEO Gregory Castle and tips and advice from animal rescue experts, kids can learn how they can make a difference and become a rescue ambassador.
Cat Tales: True Stories of Kindness and Companionship with Kitties (all ages, $12.99) features cats from around the world, each one with an amazing story to tell about their compassion, ingenuity and bravery. “Ask an Expert” sections throughout the book offer insight into understanding the curious world of cat behavior, ways to keep your favorite feline happy both mentally and physically and even the trick to taking great cat photos (because the internet does not have nearly enough!:)). And are you curious as to why we love those cute cat videos? Page 57 explains the science behind the obsession.
