Talking Tails: The Incredible Connection Between People and Their Pets - Ann Love, Bill Slavin, Jane Drake This book is not only adorable but it is full of facts about dogs, cats and other pet-type animals. There is also a fascinating time line about animals that runs through the whole book at the bottom of each page. Obviously, I am a dog person, but the stories in the book gave the pros and cons about each animal and would help a child decide which would be the best pet for their family. There is also a great poster that folds out from the dust jacket. This would make an excellent gift to any child who adores animals or a child's library.
