National Geographic Kids Pet Books! + Reader Giveaway

Are your family members pet lovers? Ours are! Our cats and dog are an important part of our family and a never ending source of fun, laughter and love. The youngest members of your household can be both entertained and educated with two new titles from Nat Geo Kids that are not only fun reads, but also contain important information that will help kids be the very best caretakers, companions and pet rescue champions they can be.

125 Pet Rescues, From Pound to Palace: Homeless Pets Made Happy (ages 8-12, $12.99) is a collection of laugh-out-loud and heartwarming stories of animals in need who went on to become pampered pets. Just like the pit bulls featured on pages 16 & 17, though, don’t judge this book by its cover. The 125 vignettes of pets that have been rescued provides eye-opening insight into the power of compassion and kindness and the amazingly positive impact that rescuing a dog, cat, pig, horse or even a goat can have on the humans that open their hearts and their homes to them. 125 Pet Rescues has been created in cooperation with the Best Friends Animal Society whose mission is to bring about a time when there are no more homeless pets. Featuring a forward by Best Friends CEO Gregory Castle and tips and advice from animal rescue experts, kids can learn how they can make a difference and become a rescue ambassador.

Cat Tales: True Stories of Kindness and Companionship with Kitties (all ages, $12.99) features cats from around the world, each one with an amazing story to tell about their compassion, ingenuity and bravery. “Ask an Expert” sections throughout the book offer insight into understanding the curious world of cat behavior, ways to keep your favorite feline happy both mentally and physically and even the trick to taking great cat photos (because the internet does not have nearly enough!:)). And are you curious as to why we love those cute cat videos? Page 57 explains the science behind the obsession.

Reader Giveaway: One lucky Jinxy Kids reader will win both 125 Pet Rescues, From Pound to Palace: Homeless Pets Made Happy and Cat Tales: True Stories of Kindness and Companionship with Kitties. To enter, just complete the entry form below by 11:59pm ET on 6/26/17. Good luck!
