New animal series for the middle school reader

Get to Know Cat, Dog, and Horse Breeds is a series of three titles, with each 128+ page title focusing on a different animal. Each title features detailed descriptions of different internationally recognized breeds. These titles are a great page length for the middle school student.

For those that are cat lovers, have you ever heard of the Neva Masquerade? The FIFe (Fédération International Féline) considers this as part of the same breed as the colorpoint Siberian, and not in its own category. How about the Sokoke? This cat is found in the Arabuko-Sokoke rain forest in Kenya.

Have you ever heard of the Polish Tatra Shepherd? This white shepherd breed is closely related to the Great Pyrenees. How about the Entlebuch Cattle Dog and Appenzell Cattle Dog? These breeds were named after their places of origin in Switzerland. Read about a lot more of these lesser known breeds in the Dogs book.

The Horse title goes into detail about a lot of lesser known breeds of horses usually found in the United States. Does the breed Akhal-Teke sound familiar? Thought to be one of the oldest horse breeds in the world, the origin of this breed is from Central Asia. The Berber originated in North Africa. There are only a few purebred Berbers left. Many Berbers have been crossbred with Arabians.

All of these titles are available from your preferred vendor,, local bookstores, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble. They are available in both library and paperback editions.

It's Adopt a Shelter Cat Month!

Hopefully lots of cats will be adopted this month!

Learning to Care for a Cat, written by Felicia Lowenstein Niven, would be a great addition to a library collection, allowing families to read the book (before they adopt a new family member) in order to make sure that adopting a cat is the right move for them. Written for the elementary student, this title will allow elementary readers (and their families) understand what goes into caring for their new pet.

This 48 page title contains color photographs and has been approved by the American Humane Association. This library bound title is available to schools and public libraries for $17.95.
