Summer Reading Bingo: Read a book about animals

This should be another fun and easy square to check off. Reading a book to a child counts, and I’m sure our Youth Services department has loads of suggestions. Reading a book to your pet counts (especially this summer, and if you wanted to share a pic of your pet enjoying a book, we’d love to see it). There are also lots of recent books about animals that you can borrow from the library just to enjoy by yourself. Here are a few:

  • Hero dogs: how a pack of rescues, rejects, and strays became America’s greatest disaster-search partners by Wilma Melville
  • Rescue dogs: where they come from, why they act the way they do, and how to love them well by Pete Paxton
  • Darling, I love you: poems from the hearts of our glorious mutts and all our animal friends by Daniel Ladinsky; illustrated by Patrick McDonnell
  • The boy, the mole, the fox and the horse by Charlie Mackesy
