Sammy Sparow's First Flight
One we love is The Daily Pip blog and especially "Reading with Ruby". Today's reviewed book was one Mom squee'd with delight over, and is going to order one for the grandpeeps.
With the aid of a kindly owl; the story has a happy ending; one I know the little ones would love to read.
Based on the author's childhood years of rescuing baby sparrows that fell out of a multi-room birdhouse that sat high up on a pole in her neighbor's yard, the book is raising money for a number of Illinois humane organizations, doing their part to rescue those "lost little sparrows" in the form of dogs, cats, and horses that need loving homes or restorative care. I think the world lost a wonderful Vet when Tracy switched her college major to English, but her wonderful way with the written word is doing amazing things; to not just support the animals with monetary help, but to open up people's eyes to the world around them and the love we animals bring into your lives.
