Tails and Tales: Summer Reading
Unlikely Friendships: 47 Remarkable Stories from the Animal Kingdom by Jennifer S. Holland
The title of this one says it all. The photographs will steal your heart, make you laugh, or inspire smiles. I laughed out loud at the photo of Bramble the owl who is watching over her spaniel friend Sophi. The look on Bramble's face definitely says to keep your space from her best friend.

Summertime makes me think of fun trips to the Zoo, and learning more about the wonderful world of animals!

Collected here are tales of rattlers battling turkeys, guarding treasures, assembling in rattlesnake bolas (big, writhing balls of snakes!), rattlesnake odors, and bite antidotes. Great fun for the armchair cowpoke! Watch where you walk…
