This book contains true stories of animals who have gone on to become famous: Balto, Punxsutawney Phil, The Pacing White Mustang, Smokey Bear, Scannon, three gray whales, the cat Sugar, Blind Tom, Koko, and the Hemlock Pair. Animals, and information about animals, always seem to capture the attention of first and second graders. This is a great read aloud, read together, or read alone book and a terrific way to begin reading non-fiction!
