A really good nonfiction book for younger readers about being a vet, specifically an ER vet. Readers will learn what these vets do. There are many real animal photos in this book but nothing too graphic for a young reader. The book is also very entertaining and is a good book for a kid considering being a vet to read.

Informational Chapter Book Review over ER Vets: Life in an Animal Emergency Room I loved ER Vets: Life in an Animal Emergency Room by Donna M. Jackson. I felt that this book was very educational and quite accurate for the most part. I connected very well with this book because my dad is a veterinarian. I feel as though Jackson did an outstanding job of portraying real life situations to the facts of what actually occurs in a vet clinic. This book is an excellent informational chapter book because she explains precisely what has to go on in order for everything to run smoothly. She describes what equipment is used, and not to mention the amount of patience and love that is involved in making each procedure a successful one. What I love about this book is that she shows not only the good parts of being involved in an animal emergency room, but also the bad parts. The "reality parts," the parts where not every animal they treat, lives. I think a part that I found quite amusing was the fact that they were working on a snake. The snake dies however in the book, but why I found it funny was that they actually worked on the snake. I know with my dad a snake is the only animal he will not work on. His answer to a question about a sick snake, is "Get a shovel and kill the son of a gun!" I also loved all of the pictures that were included in this book. I think they made an excellent addition to this book. This book is very educational, and needs to be included in any project dealing with animals. sdv 3301.03 EDRD
