The Lucky Litter: Wolf Pups Rescued from Wildfire
The Lucky Litter: Wolf Pups Rescued from Wildfire follows the rescue of five wolf pups who were found in the wild. They were found by a firefighter. They were not being taken care of by their mother so a biologist took them to the Alaska Zoo. The vets gave them special milk, and medicine. As the pups grew up they moved to live outdoors, where they played, explored and chewed on sticks. The pups grew quickly and by the time they were nine weeks old, they moved to the Minnesota Zoo where they will live the rest of their lives as a pack.
I really liked The Lucky Litter: Wolf Pups Rescued from Wildfire. It was so neat that the book was full of photos from the pups while they were being rescued and cared for at the zoos. There is information at the back of the book, about wildlife rescue, wildfires, wolves and growing bodies. This helps teach more about the some things in the book. I found it interesting that the wolf pups grew into their own pack, with two becoming the pack leader, without having any adult wolves to teach them how. I think kids who like animals will love The Lucky Litter: Wolf Pups Rescued from Wildfire.
