We read this book and LOVED it! Meet Hannah and her three friends, a group of stray pit bulls simply trying to get by on their own. Sergeant Jeremy, just home from the service, is trying to do the same thing. Learn how they rescue each other (and a few others along the way) and finally find their forever home. To Parents and Teachers:Rescued! is the first in a series of childrens fine short stories entitled Hannahs Happy Dog Tales, written by Coleen Balch and illustrated by Cathleen Berry. Intended for 8- to 12-year-olds, this inspiring book addresses several timely topics: bullying, stereotypes, animal cruelty, bravery, trust, adjustment of returning war veterans, and cooperation. The author handles these issues carefully with a light, even humorous, tone. Rescued! is perfect for classroom study. From group discussions to book reports, the inspiring story and detailed color illustrations will keep students involved while learning valuable life lessons.
