Animal Rescue by Patrick George

1503285_10152956394305446_3082104686631865491_nAnimal Rescue by Patrick George allows you, the reader, to become an animal rescue hero.

It’s a gentle, yet incredibly poignant, introduction to the importance of animal welfare for the younger reader and allows them to choose the right habitat for each animal.

Each page is vivaciously vibrant with pops of colour, undoubtedly appealing to young and emerging readers.

With the simple but ingenious use of transparent pages, it magically transforms the animal from a clearly inappropriate scenario to a much more appropriate habitat to for the animal, in a non-threatening way. With a turn of the the page we can save our living creature from its awful fate.

10906515_10152956394140446_1706588394303814976_nI shared this book with a group of children aged 4-5 years old and it was a great introduction to animal welfare for a much younger audience.

The simple, clear artwork allowed us to focus on the main point of each page and the children could clearly identify the right and wrong scenario for each animal.

When published in February, a donation from the sale of each book will be given to the Born Free Foundation to help protect endangered animals in the wild.

Patrick George has also used this concept in his previous books and the transparent pages serve a hugely important purpose.

Equally as vibrant and with simple, clean imagery, these collection of books are perfect for a younger audience and a great introduction to some core subjects.
