Adventure has no end in this tale, where a heart for animals inspires and surprises await around every bend.

Weston and Wendy discover several over-heated bunnies left behind after the County Fair. After assisting their father in cooling them down, they take on the job as foster parents until the true owners can pick them up a few days later. The two children are sad to see the rabbits go, but soon discover more animals who require their help. The RES-Q Tyler Stop is born, and their mission is to

RES-Q Tyler Stop by June McCrary Jacobs is a delightful tale set in 1968 and aimed at children 8 – 12 years old. I am considerably older but I enjoyed it.
The novel teaches us valuable life lessons as we follow the two main characters eleven year old Weston and his nine year old sister. Together they show compassion and care as they rescue animals. The reader sees the importance of taking care of all God’s creatures.
We all make choices. Sometimes we fail to heed advice and bad choices are made. W

Youth oriented books aren't really my thing, but since this year I am really trying to get out of my reading comfort zone, I thought I would give RES-Q Tyler Stop by June McCrary Jacobs a try. If the title throws you off you are in good company. You learn early on that Tyler Stop is the name of the town where the family lives but you have to wait a few chapters to learn that RES-Q is actually an acronym for the rescue adoption that Wendy and Weston, the two children in the story, create, meaning ...more

Res-Q Tyler Stop is the first in a series about two siblings, Weston and Wendy Gregg, by author June McCrary Jacobs. The adventuresome siblings find themselves facing a number of issues that even many adults struggle with, yet the author writes with grace and understanding lending the reader important life lessons. While some readers may have a bit of trouble with the setting, the 1968 setting with rotary phones and the like introduce a bit of history into the mix.

This author has created some sweet characters and I loved the Gregg family. The storyline about the animal rescue was interesting and informative, and I think junior readers would greatly enjoy that section of the story. These characters have some real potential to develop into an interesting series for children.

However, I came away with being a little puzzled by this book. The “Res Q” part of the story, which I think was an original storyline that is of great interest to children, suddenly chan

June McCrary Jacobs apparently did extensive research in preparation for writing RES-Q Tyler Stop. Much information about Pomo Indians is included in the book. She also includes a resource list at the close of the book of additional information on the Pomo Indians. I love the concept of the book - children rescuing animals and setting up an organization to fund the rescues. The bullying issue seems very typical of the way things are handled in some families - with parents encouraging the behavio ...more

Any animal-loving reader is immediately pulled into this story that takes place in the fictional town of Tyler Stop in Sonoma County, California, in 1968. The main character, Weston, who is eleven years old, along with his sister, Wendy, nine, initiate the rescue of some rabbits who have apparently been abandoned at the county fair. This successful venture leads the children to create an animal rescue operation with the help of their parents, the local vet, and many people in the town. It is tou ...more

I was intrigued by the synopsis of the book when I first read it. We are an animal loving home and if it was up to my boys, they would rescue every one they see. The setting of the book is 1968.

The main characters of the book, 2 siblings named Weston and Wendy, happen into "Pet Rescuing" sort of by accident. They find a few bunnies left at the County Fair. They were able to hunt down the owners after a few days. The bunnies gone the siblings realize how wonderful it was taking care of the animal

I don’t read a lot of middle-grade novels but when I came across RES-Q Tyler Stop by June McCrary Jacobs, it was a book that caught my attention, given that my 11-year-old son loves animals just as much as the main characters do. So, I wanted to give this middle-grade animal loving book a chance to see if it would be something my son would enjoy.

I thoroughly enjoyed the historical elements in this book and feel that it is a bonus when I pass it on to my son. I do think the main characters are v

This is a sweet middle grade story some important lessons for young people. With theses of caring, honesty, bullying, and prejudice, parents can rest assured their children are reading something that builds character while stretching their minds and imaginations.

The book begins with Weston and his sister Wendy caring for some abandoned rabbits and coming up with a plan to form a pet rescue for their town. Along the way, eleven-year-old Weston learns some hard, but important, life-lessons—some of

Wendy and Weston are very wholesome kids who find rabbits that were left behind at the county fair. Their parents agree to let them foster them as it is a good way to "teach them about compassion and kindness."
They care for the rabbits for a few days before the original owners pick them up. Then, wandering their property they find other animals that need care. After learning about the cost of vet care and animal care the siblings decide to start an animal rescue group RES-Q to raise money and he

Res-Q Tyler Stop is a gentle tale set in 1960’s California that would suit any animal loving 8-12 year olds, though my 7 year old (a strong reader) also enjoyed the book. It is well researched and feels an authentic read in setting, character and tone, testament to June McCrary Jacobs strong efforts to write a historically accurate tale. Aimed at middle-grade readers, this book is a lovely introduction to the practices and lives of Native American Indians and their consideration of the natural w ...more

I chose to read this book with my almost 8 year old son who loves to read and has a huge heart for animals. I had not heard of this author prior to reading this book. I love the way the author has created well written characters, a story line that kept both mine and my son's attention. The story will appeal to boys and girls and is set in Sonoma County in Northern California in the summer of 1968. This book is geared toward 8-12 year olds. I loved the characters! The love for animals and helping ...more

What a fun book! Set back in the 1960's when life was, in some ways, simpler, this book is a delightful story of children who look beyond themselves and adopt pets. While the time is simpler, there are still themes that will resonate with readers today, such as bullying. The main characters might be a bit hard for middle school kids to relate to, since they are pretty perfect. That said, it is still a sweet story that was a delight to read. I look forward to seeing where this series goes!

Children and compassion for animals go naturally together. But when you bring in the elements of bulling and racial injustice, you have exposed two hot topics, addressed within this story — certainly causing tension as all good stories should! Although these three elements are woven into the plot with realistic dialogue and are engaging, I was hoping to see the MC work out problems on his own, instead of relying on his parents. In that case, I would call Res-Q Tyler Stop a middle-grade book for ...more

This is such a beautiful story of love, empathy, compassion, responsibility, teamwork and animal rescue. taking place in Tyler Stop, California, two siblings named Weston and Wendy Gregg discover rabbits at the local state fair left behind. They are dehydrated and not well. Wanting to do the right thing, they take them to a local rescue where they discover many other animals have a dim fate as well unless they can find a way to help them all. The community and Gregg family rally around the kids ...more

I think this book was great !
The main characters are sweet, they have to deal with real life problems (which would be good conversation starters) and they have hearts to save all different types of animals! I would definitely recommend reading it for middle school grade kids because of the length.
I volunteered to read this book in return for my honest feed back from Just Read Tours. The thoughts and opinions expressed within are my own.

A lovely tale set in 1968, California about two animal-loving siblings who discover some over-heated bunnies left behind at the county fair and their ensuing decision to help. Not only will this story encourage empathy but also sensitively covers bullying, and other tricky things children and pre-teens can be faced with.

The story is full of adventure, twists and turns and is a great read!
