Animals at Work (ASPCA Kids)
by Liz Palika
This delightful book from the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) is a child’s guide to working dogs, cats and horses. Young readers will enjoy learning about the many jobs these animals do, how they are bred and trained to do these jobs, and the care it takes to keep them in working condition. The readers will meet, among others, dogs that answer phones, horses that dance, and cats that encourage reading!
There are color photos and eye-catching illustrations on every page that make it fun to read. The text is easy to read, but substantial enough to result in an authoritative resource which students can use to write reports and other composition projects. The 134-page book includes a complete index and a resource list of organizations that can provide more information.
The ASPCA currently has three other titles in the series: Kids Making a Difference for Animals, Amazing Pet Tricks, and Having Fun with Your Dog. For more information or to purchase, log on to the ASPCA Web site.
