In my opinion, books are the best accessory.
Pull Up A Chair, It’s a Saturday Book Share:
Eco Dogs by Judith Bauer Stamper – from the Dog Heroes book series- Non-Fiction, 3rd grade and up!
My son and I really enjoyed reading this book about dogs that are trained to help people protect animals and numerous ecosystems including land and water. It was lovely to read how some dogs that usually aren’t selected for pet adoptions because of their high energy and high interest in rewards are the perfect fit with the eco-dogs programs. It was interesting to read how important the collecting of scat (animal poo/droppings) is for monitoring how animals are doing with their diet and for many more reasons. When we were reading the book, my son grew anxious on a few pages because creatures were caught to be tagged and monitored… perfect book to discuss how much humans should interact with creatures in their environments. Additionally, this book is a friendly introduction to various ecosystems and plights of creatures around the world. Many children enjoy reading books about dogs and become invested in specific dog’s stories vs. beginning a study with a specific book on ecosystems.
Goodreads Summary: “Describes how dogs can help recapture exotic pets that have been released into the wild, locate endangered animals for tagging, and identify smugglers at airports.”
Here’s my son’s very quick book review of Eco Dogs:
About Pull up a chair, it’s a Saturday Book Share: I’ve had many books I review that I just want to feature. Simple and easy, celebrate a new book encounter. So that’s what Saturday Book Share is about for me, celebrating books! Perhaps some days I’ll share the book with a short reading of a portion. Or perhaps other days I’ll just share a glimpse of the book.
