True Tales of Animal Rescue, with author Kama Einhorn
Saturdays are for Kids at The Book Stall! On Saturday, November 16th at 2:00 PM author Kama Einhorn will visit us in the store to talk about her True Tales of Rescue series. She’ll be discussing and signing the newest releases in her animal rescue series: Tiger Time and Go, Goats!. This event is free and open to the public and is recommended for animal lovers ages 7 to 10.
About Go Goats!: Wise old goat Lucia is a member of what the farm staff calls the Underfoot Family at Catskills Animal Sanctuary. It’s a group of more than fifty animals – goat, sheep, chickens, ducks, and even a pig – who have free rein of the farm. While the staff works hard to rescue, recover, rehabilitate and release all of the farm animals who come to the sanctuary, not every animal will leave — Lucia is one who will spend the rest of her days in the comfort of the sanctuary. What is life like at Catskills Animal Sanctuary? Lucia will tell you everything!
In Tiger Time, we’ll meet Kamal! He’s a tiger and a resident of Wild Animal Sanctuary (WAS) in Colorado, along with 500 other big animals. Most of them have never lived in the wild. They’ve come from roadside zoos, entertainment facilities, and even people’s homes! But even though a tiger can be super adorable as a baby, big (and little) tigers should never be pets. That’s where WAS steps in. The animals often come from terrible situations, and lack instincts that would keep them alive if they were able to live where they belong. The staff at WAS changes all of that, getting animals like Kamal the tiger healthy, trusting, and safe again–and as close to wild as they can be.
