I’ve never read a Babysitter’s Club book. That might be shocking to many of my friends who grew up reading them, but, instead, I fell in love with a series called The Animal Inn. Sadly, the series is now out of print, but it left a distinct impression on me. The books followed a family who ran a veterinary practice. The plots revolved around rescued racehorses and circus animals as well as the ever-growing menagerie at the family’s farm.
Animals are such an important part of our lives, that it’s no surprise they are the subject of books for all ages. I might have grown up reading The Animal Inn series, but I’ve since moved on to other titles that still show just how much our pets mean to us. Here are a few titles that show the power of animals in our lives.
