Praise for Being Kind to Animals:
"Animals are a major part of our lives, be they household companions, in a country corral, or
scampering through a nearby wood. This entry in the Read and Discover Social Studies series (4
titles) provides a gentle guide to considerate behavior around all kinds of animals, domesticated
and wild. The first section focuses on pets, giving tips on interaction and care. The next extends
to behavior around animals in their natural habitats, suggesting that the best way to care for
living things is to look after the planet. Margins of spare text are outweighed by large, splashy
photos featuring a variety of critters, from common chickens to cuddly chinchillas. Back matter
includes suggestions to improve reading comprehension and vocabulary, and a complete word
list offers fledgling readers help with fluency." —Booklist
