I was trolling the pictures on my camera one day when I came across a few of my children holding some books that I’d received to review. It’s been a very long time since I received them (so long ago that I’m embarrassed to tell when), but I know they’re ones you want to hear about and share with your children.
These children’s books relay true stories of special animals that have been rescued, rehabilitated and adopted at the Compassionate Pet Sanctuary, Inc., a non-profit organization in California. They sent us The Miracle of the Little Kitten, The Three-Legged Kitten, Stinky Little Scroungy and Our Orphaned Owls, which were all written and illustrated by Samuel Lopez. My children are true book lovers so it’s no wonder they loved these stories, but they were even more enthralled when they discovered that they’re actually true. My son was particularly amazed by the pictures of the actual animals that are included in the books. (I have absolutely no idea why my daughters didn’t have on their shirts… I’m sure that’s a post for another day!)
The books are written in a way that are easily understandable the children, and I must admit that I also found the stories to be quite engaging. It’s always interesting to read about true-life stories of success, adventure and rescue.
These books, which can be purchased at True Stories About Saving Animals for $14.95 each, have found a home on my children’s bookshelves to be enjoyed over and over again. If you have an animal lover on your holiday gift list then these are definitely books they’ll enjoy.
