Wednesday, October 22nd

Jennifer Holland is the author of the bestselling UNLIKELY FRIENDSHIPS and UNLIKELY LOVES. Now, she’ll be visiting your child’s school to present her latest release, UNLIKELY HEROES:

Unlikely Heroes uncovers and celebrates yet another side of animals that we often think belongs primarily to people—heroism, that indefinable quality of going above and beyond, often for altruistic reasons, often at great personal risk. These 37 inspiring true tales show animals whose quick acts have saved lives, like the pod of dolphins that protected swimmers in New Zealand from a great white shark by forming a screen around them. There are stories of animals who simply and unselfishly give, like Rojo the llama, which shines his very special light of loving kindness on the elderly patients in an Oregon rehab center.  And there are compelling stories of heroic resilience: like Naki’o, the abandoned puppy who lost all four paws to frostbite but found the grit not only to overcome that terrible hardship but to reclaim the joy of life.
