Cute story of a family who does animal rescue and the new neighbors who move in next door. Not much depth for an adult read, but should be fine for the target audience of younger children.

Grandma and grandchild are half a world apart, but she reminds him that they still see the same moon.

A sweet/bittersweet tale that will personally touch many of us who live far away from our families.

This lovely book is an ode to cats, those who have kittens, those who are strays who come in from the rain, those who are the boss and let their owner know they are in charge.

Then, there are cats that like to crawl under the covers at night, others who are beatiful with white fur. some ar born in the farmer's barn, and there are cats who love to wait and then surprise the people who care for them.

Anone who loves cats will like this book.

A loving family of mother, father and two sisters, rescue and place Geat Pyrenees dogs. Brushed often, still there is always white fur adhering to almost every surface. There is a constant place of dogs rescued and brought into this home to be placed in another. It takes a lot of love and patience to get attached to a dog only to find a home for him/her. But, there is one dog that remains with them and this dog will perform a wonderful task when a little boy is dropped off at the neighbors house.

The family learns that he refuses to talk, and is very attached to their family dog. The two sisters grow to love the little boy, and the mother welcomes the little boy's aunt with whom he lives.

A nice story with a bit of drama, lots of love and the mission to help a little boy relearn to talk.
