Rescuing big wild cats and bears

Rescuing big wild cats and bears

We join outreach educator, Beckie, at Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge to learn all about rescuing big wild cats and bears from people who tried to own these animals as pets and for profit fake zoos. In "Predator, Not Pets," learn laws, stories, and how this center gives a second life to wild species. Learn more about the center and the animals. Check out a video of the animals playing.

J. Scott Savage, Children's Author

J. Scott Savage, popular children's author, shows us how easy and fun it is to create stories, become authors, and Find our Magic! This is a fun approach to feeling comfortable as writers and students created an original story with the author. To check out all the fun resources, check out his website. If students write stories and send them to him (through his website), he will post your story on his website! Check out this book trailer for J. Scott Savage's newest book: Lost in Wonderland.

Book Club for Kids is the award-winning podcast where kids talk about books. The Times of London calls it one of the world's top 10 kidcasts. Common Sense Media rates it "excellent." The New York Times says the "virtual gathering space for young readers feels more vital than ever in the social distancing era."

This summer, they will feature kids who participate in library Summer Reading programs across the country. It's easy:

- find the voice memo or recording app on a smartphone

- set the level somewhere in the middle

- have the reader introduce her/himself as:

Hi, my name is - (first name only)

I'm from - (what city)

And my library is - (what's the name of your library)

My favorite book is - (what's the title of your book)

Because - (not the plot, but why YOU like this book and why you'd recommend it to someone else)

Email the audio files to us at kitty@bookclubforkids.org.

OR: Your child can just call them at 323-639-3560 and follow the script.
