This nicely-presented Juv Nonfiction book would make a fine addition to grade school and public library shelves, as well as in the resource collections of humane educators.

Youngsters enjoy reading about the accomplishments of kids their own age, and those who wish to help animals will be inspired by this wide variety of true stories. Although most of the book is about helping dogs and cats, I was pleased to see some stories advocating concern for more overlooked species, as well. The author helpfully concludes each section with practical ideas for young readers who also want to get involved.

My only complaint with this book is it can be a bit too wordy to hold the attention of its intended audience. The author seemingly wants to cram in as many stories as possible, and the result can be at times jumbled.

I purchased this book for my library.
