Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Mary Ellen Snodgrass
Byers's excellent suggestions for jobs involving animals incorporates straightforward text with appealing photos of young assistants working with a variety of animals, including a manatee, baby parrot, pandas, and sea turtle. The positive, unpatronizing tone respects the contribution of child volunteerism, a character-elevating habit started in early life. An array of addresses, both postal and electronic, introduces rural and urban readers to the National Audubon Society, ASPCA, National Wildlife Federation, and other organizations in the U.S. and Canada that focus on animal welfare. Suggested activities range from hands-on animal bathing and trimming to baking animal treats, blogging, and raising show quality rabbits. Presentation is uncluttered and appealing in bright orange, yellow, and blue. Glossing presents realistic terms, such as neuter, sanctuary, and euthanize. Indexing refers readers to animal preserves, 4-H, foster care, docents, and pet sitting. One page that violates reading encouragement, p. 22 presents white-on-orange text without paragraph breaks, an obstacle to disadvantaged or ESL readers.
