ReadPlus review of Rainbow Street Pets
A nice treat to find another review today, courtesy of my google alert:
Highly recommended. Short stories. Animals. The author of the books about Nim, again reveals her skills at teaching young readers about animals and how to look after them in this book of 6 stories about the Rainbow Street Shelter. The stories may be about animals and finding a human to look after them but each story contains a considerable amount of information about the animal and its care, as well as showcasing the range of animals suitable for homes and families of various types.
