Book cover: Animal Rescueby Patrick George

Grades PreK-4

In this wordless book, readers become animal rescuers, just by turning the page.

A two-page spread shows an animal (or her body parts) being oppressed or exploited on one side – flip the transparent page and the animal is living in her natural habitat.

The colorful images are simple, clever, and depict a variety of issues that can be discussed (age-appropriately), from wearing fur and going to zoos to shark finning, hunting, and saving animal companions.

Animal Rescue is a hopeful and inspiring book that promotes compassion and positive action.
