“Maverick and Me” by Katherine Schwarzenegger

Maverick and MeMaverick and Me by Katherine Schwarzenegger
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This story is sure to melt your heart. This tale is based on the true story of the author’s care for animals that are alone in the world. A very real need in the animal community today is animal adoption, the theme of this book. To teach youth the importance of animal adoption, readers follow the tale of Maverick to his forever home. Filled with hope and compassion, the characters in this tale support and encourage one another.

The illustrations in this book are full of life and color – one can “see” the emotions discussed in the artwork found on each page. Designed for children ages two to ten, this book works well for family story time as well as asking children to think about kindness to animals as well as others, as well as practical ways in which one can display this kindness. The beautiful illustrations pair well with this important message, and is a great title that is a “recommended read.”
