Enslow Pet Care Books To Celebrate National Pet Week

The week of May 5th is National Pet Care Week. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, the week is intended to "promote responsible pet ownership, celebrate the human-animal bond, and promote public awareness of veterinary medicine."

Throughout its three-plus decades of K-12 nonfiction publishing, Enslow has embraced the notion of increasing young readers' knowledge of pet care and respect for animals. "The American Humane Association Pet Care Series," a six-book group of titles for Grades 3-4, continues that worthy tradition. These 48-page books, written by Laura S. Jeffrey, focuses on a different pet animal, including cats and dog. The works' chapter format, easy-to-read text, and inherent high interest help encourage interest and circulation of these American Humane Association-approved texts.

A review of the series may be found School Library Journal's April 2013 edition.

All books in the series, such as Choosing a Cat: How to Choose and Care for a Cat, are available in a library-bound edition directly from Enslow Publishers for $17.95; that price represents a 25% discount from Enslow's list price for each title in that series. The books are also available in paperback for $7.95 per title from Enslow, your preferred vendor, Barnes and Noble, and Amazon. An e-book version is also available; please call Enslow Publishers for more information about ordering our e-books!
