The Lucky Litter: Wolf Pups Rescued from Wildfire - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review from Arbordale Publishing.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

When a huge wildfire roared along the Funny River in the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska, firefighters rushed to the rescue. Finding not one but five wolf pups in need, they raced into action to save the whole litter. With no wolf parents to help, zookeepers and vets at the Alaska Zoo made sure the babies grew into a healthy, happy pack. Follow this true story as the helpless pups move from the charred refuge to the Alaska Zoo, finally becoming big and strong enough to move into their forever home at the Minnesota Zoo.

My Review:

Wolves are one of my favorite creatures.  I think they're a beautiful, majestic species.  The Lucky Litter: Wolf Pups Rescued from Wildfire tells the true story of five wolf pups who were discovered during a wildfire.  They were rescued by firefighters and taken to an animal hospital.  After they were fully recovered, the wolves were placed in a zoo.  This short story details each step with authentic photos. 

The "For Creative Minds" section in the back of the book teaches children matter on the subjects of wildlife rescue sequencing and growing animal bodies.  It also teaches about wildfire and how they start.  More interesting material explained is the explanation of keystone species and how wolves play an important part in the ecosystem.

The Lucky Litter: Wolf Pups Rescued from Wildfire is a Fall 2015 release from Arbordale Publishing.

I visited Bandelier National Monument after the Las Conchas wildfire three or four years ago. It was shocking to see something I'd visited many times in the past look so different and otherworldly.

No I havent thank God. There are a few bad wildfires here Ca. My cousins had to be evacuated so we're praying their house is still there. Almost 1000 houses and outside structures have burned. Thank you for the chance :)

Yes, we live in the Piney woods of East Texas. It gets very hot and dry in August and Many people rurally burn their trash and unfortunately cause forest fires!

Nope! The neighbors' hay bales catch on fire occasionally, but that's about all the fire drama we have here, thank the good Lord.
