Ten True Animal Rescues by Jeanne Betancourt
This simply written book contains ten true stories about amazing animal rescues in the United States. The story about the shark attack is pretty amazing, especially the part about how the dolphin managed to get its cargo safely to shore. There is also a lovely story about a hamster which saved a family from a house fire and one about a dog who saved the life of a diabetic boy. It is an easy read for a middle or upper primary student and makes you realise just how intelligent animals are. My favourite is probably the one about Daisy the cow who saved her owner, Donal Motram, from certain death at the hoofs and horns of a deranged bull.
