A while back I was sent a PDF copy of the kids book ‘Nemo and Giraffe‘ so that I could have a read and tell you all about it.
The book ‘Nemo and Giraffe’ is available on Amazon in Kindle ebook for £1.99 or in paperback for £4.99.
Here is the blurb from the book :-
“Nemo was an indoor cat who had never been outside. But Nemo wasn’t alone on the inside; – Nemo had a very unique best friend. Nemo’s best friend wasn’t a cat, a fish or rat, Nemo’s best friend was a Giraffe!” This is a delightful tale of friendship and how anyone can be friends no matter how different they may seem.
The book is written by Lee Hunter and illustrated by Lindy Damen.
Here is some info about Lee taken from the Amazon page:-
Lee Hunter is a child care professional and runs her own child care business. Lee and her husband have an indoor cat called Nemo. Nemo struggled to adjust to the children being present in his once quiet home and rather than keep the children at a distance Lee tried to encourage Nemo to trust the children but also for the children to understand Nemo and his needs. Through her experiences with children it soon became apparent to her that there was a further need for young children to become comfortable, confident and aware of boundaries around animals. This then inspired Lee to begin the wonderful adventure of writing for children. Lee hopes to be able to teach children how to care for animals and how to respond to their individual needs. She hopes that being able to respond to these needs will enable children to be able to respond to the needs and emotions of family, friends and peers. Lee hopes that if a child can respond appropriately to the needs of an animal and be able to acknowledge the animal as a being with feelings and not an object that it will positively impact on the child throughout life. Lee also hopes to be able to teach children valuable life lessons including friendship. Lee is also an active animal rights supporter and hopes that if children can learn how to treat animals appropriately and with compassion that it will positively impact on how they treat animals later in life and hopes that it will help stop animal cruelty.
I was given access to a online PDF of the book so I have read through it and think it is a lovely story. 🙂 My daughter enjoyed it when I read it to her.
If you’d like to have a look at the story you can read through a couple of the pages on the Amazon website using the ‘Look Inside’ link.
