Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Combines everything kids love to read about -- exciting adventures, wonderful animals, daring rescues." --Examiner.com

"The stories run the gamut from heartwarming to inspirational to thrilling. The story selection will appeal to even the most reluctant readers." --Library Media Connection

Children's Literature - Tima Murrell
Animals can be just as courageous as humans. And often their heroic deeds are rescuing the humans that they love. The author has taken three different types of animals and tells the stories of the heroic rescues they accomplished. Meet Lilly, the pit bull who rescued her human mom from a train. There are also dolphins who rescue swimmers from sharks, and gorillas who rescue small children when they fall. Written in chapter form, the stories are simple and easy for a child to read, but interesting enough to capture an adult's attention. Pictures are spread through the book for visual aid. Brightly colored borders add interest to every page and help divide each chapter. Any words that might be a bit difficult are sounded out in parenthesis. Little bullet points throughout each chapter provide addition information about the animals. The stories are a beautiful way to bring children closer to their pets and show just how amazing animals can be. Reviewer: Tima Murrell

    I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.
