Congratulations to Carol Nelson who won A Girl Like You.
I hope you are enjoying hearing about the wonderful books that Sleeping Bear Press publishes; here is one for the young animal-lover in your home or classroom.
The book invites the reader to meet the six and a half million pets who arrive at community animal shelters every year. Some are strays, some have been rescued from natural disasters, some are given up for adoption.
Personally, this wouldn't be my pet of choice, but along with turtles, lizards, and bearded dragons, some people want a quiet pet that doesn't have fur or feathers!
Whichever pet a young person is considering adopting, this is a great book to consider all the options. Two end pages provide information on how shelters began, things to consider when adopting a pet, steps a child should take when thinking about adoption, and other resources.
