This photographic journal takes us behind the scenes in the day of a wildlife rehabilitator.
Rehabilitators feed and care for orphaned, sick, or injured wildlife. They also teach people about the rescued animals at wildlife centers. Teaching them about the specific animal as well as what to do if they find a hurt animal in the wild.
The desire is to return the animal to it's native environment. The photos in this book are just gorgeous, from owls, opossums, birds, fawn and more.
This is a fantastic book for young people to explore wildlife and careers associated with them. Geared for preschool to third grade. Very easy reading, but informational as well.
The back of the book contains a section on Creative Minds: Compare and Contrast vets and rehabilitators. They also have some great true and false questions to get the reader thinking more deeply.
