Nonfiction Monday: Animal Hospital: Rescuing Urban Wildlife by Julia Coey

Anybody who likes adorable pictures of baby animals and those who want to help wildlife will want to read this book. So, basically, everybody.

This book walks readers through daily life in an animal rehabilitation center and talks about how animals are assessed, cared for and released. It also explains why a rehabilitation center is needed and includes practical ways kids and adults can get involved in helping animals from correct treatment of possibly injured animals to not damaging habitats or releasing animals into strange places.

The text is not too dense and includes many sections on the stories of different animals, dealing with common animal rescues like rabbits and baby birds, and how animals are housed and released.

Verdict: This is a great overview for urban and suburban wildlife and kids and adults will enjoy being introduced to the subject. Recommended.
