In my opinion, books are the best accessory.
Merlin (Shelter Pet Squad #2) by Cynthia Lord – Early Chapter Book – Realistic Fiction – I’m just loving this series. This book was so special with a young girl, Suzannah, who becomes focused on finding a new home for a ferret after it is dropped off at a shelter. I love how the shelter pet squad finds ways to help out the shelter pets and also gets opportunities to learn at the same time. There is fantastic back matter about ferrets, volunteering and helping a shelter and making fun toys for animals.
Book Talk: Where do you look when a pet is missing? Do you look in your couch? In the vents? Suzannah has to search for a missing ferret when she arrives at the pet shelter where she volunteers. Read to find out what happens next!
Goodreads Summary: “A pet is missing!
When Suzannah arrives to volunteer at the shelter, one of the animals is missing! It’s Merlin, a mischievous ferret who gets into everything, and loves to play hide and seek.
Owning a ferret can be really hard work, the Shelter Pet Squad discovers. Whoever takes Merlin home will need to be prepared. That’s why Suzannah and the other kids make up a test to give to anyone who wants to adopt him. But the ferret is full of surprises . . . and even the Shelter Pet Squad has a lot to learn.”
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.
