A Must Read for Animal Lovers


A Must Read for Animal Lovers

By Melissa Stewart

Do you know someone who has a special kind of connection with animals? My niece, Caroline, is one of those people.

Animals just adore her. They trust her completely. Does Caroline have a future in veterinary medicine? Maybe. But that’s a tall order to put on a third grader, so let’s just say that interacting with animals is one of her special talents.

If you have someone like Caroline in your life, then here’s the perfect holiday gift: Animals Welcome: A Life of Reading, Writing, and Rescue by children’s book author Peg Kehret. This wonderful memoir describes the many animals Mrs. Kehret has cared for—pets, strays, foster cats, and even wild creatures—with brief mentions of how some of them played a role in her novels.

Like Caroline, Peg Kehret, clearly has a way with animals, so I can’t wait to share this lovingly written true story with my niece.

  1. Good morning! I’m contributing a STEM haiku today @shelfemployed.

  2. I love Peg Kehret’s books, animals and all. Over at Sally’s Bookshelf I’ve posted a review of “A Place for Bats” by Melissa Stewart, another author who writes about animals. There’s also a short “three question” interview with the author.

  3. Archimedes Notebook is delving into math with a review of “Infinity and Me” by Kate Hosford – along with an author interview and a less than infinite number of curious links.
