PRR Kid's Book Review
Amazing Stories of Adopted Strays
By Peg Kehret
In Project Read and Reach at Lincoln Elementary we read this book about shelter dogs. We learned that dogs can help people in many ways. As we prepared for our first Service Learning Project we saw how important it is to place homeless dogs and cats in happy homes.
We read about many wonderful dogs in this book. Ivan, a black lab, is a hearing-ear dog who saved his family from a fire. Joey is a German Shepherd and a service dog. His owner has multiple sclerosis and Joey helps her do simple household jobs. Bridgette is a seizure-alert dog. She can predict when her owner is going to have a seizure.
Tyler said, “These dogs inspired me to help other people and to help homeless dogs and cats in St. Charles, Missouri.”
Tori learned how important it is to help homeless dogs and cats because they might be able to help you, too!
Hailey learned that dogs have many talents that can help people.
Blake learned the many different ways dogs can help their families.
Alija learned that dogs at the Humane Society have many skills that can help people. They need a home and are eager to learn how to help.
Paityn said, “Dogs sometimes surprise us with their tricks and hidden talents.”
Alija added: “I think you should read this book because it has inspirational stories about dogs. I loved it!”
We went to Five Acres Animal Shelter and we learned more about dogs & cats. While we were at Five Acres we met a dog named Flower. Flower was turned into Five Acres. They tried to find Flower a home, but nobody wanted her. When we visited Five Acres we found out that the next day she was getting adopted. by: Evan
