Geribo, The Shelter Cat is a narrative written from the perspective of an adventurous kitty who is sharing his knowledge about the animal shelter as he explores the walls within. This sweet story, with beautiful illustrations, is on just the right level for young ones, and helps provide awareness regarding the role an animal shelter plays with an age-appropriate message. This is a wonderful tool to teach children at home and in the classroom the value of adoption, and the importance of caring for their own pets and giving them a home for life. This book also highlights the difficult, but worthwhile job each shelter employee and volunteer does to advocate for homeless animals. A must read for every family that loves animals.
Written by local Author Clare Eckard on her adventures with the Yuma Humane Society.
