I don’t know about you, but I love non-fiction books, which is why I was so excited when Miss Theresa handed me this book. Wildlives, written by Ben Lerwill and illustrated by Sarah Walsh, is a trip through history with a spotlight on the animals who played a part in major (and some minor) events. Each two-page spread tells the touching story of an animal who has helped humans in some way, either by saving lives, furthering science, teaching us lessons, or inspiring us to greatness. This book is rich and interesting, and animal-loving children in grades 3 through 6 will enjoy reading it on their own. However, this would make a lovely read-aloud book for younger children…the stories are captivating and the combination of photos and drawings make the artwork very interesting. Here’s a taste of what you will find inside:
Duffy the Donkey
Wojtek the Bear
