Like humans, animals can get sick or hurt. People visit doctors. Pets see veterinarians. What happens to wild animals when they are injured, become ill, or are orphaned? Often, wildlife rehabilitators are called to their rescue. This photographic journal takes readers "behind the scenes" at four different wildlife rehabilitation centers. Fall in love with these backyard animals as they are nursed back to health and released back to the wild when possible. This is the first of a photographic series introducing the different ways and the many people who care for a wide variety of animals. Look for future Animal Helpers titles to include Zoo Keepers, Aquarists, Big Animal Rescuers, Marine Animal Rescuers, Conservationists, and Veterinarians.This nonfiction picture book with a cuddle factor includes a 4-page For Creative Minds section in the back of the book and a 82-page cross-curricular Teaching Activity Guide online. Animal Helpers is vetted by experts and designed to encourage parental engagement. Its extensive back matter helps teachers with time-saving lesson ideas, provides extensions for science, math, and social studies units, and uses inquiry-based learning to help build critical thinking skills in young readers. The Spanish translation supports ELL and dual-language programs. The enhanced ebook reads aloud in both English and Spanish with word highlighting and audio speed control to promote oral language skills, fluency, pronunciation, text engagement, and reading comprehension.

display_description Zoos are amazing places to see and learn about the many native and exotic of animals that inhabit this world. Some animals are plentiful while others are threatened or in danger of extinction. Zookeepers not only feed and care for these animals, they may also be helping to conserve and protect whole species through breeding and "head start" programs. Follow the extraordinary duties of these unusual animal helpers in this behind-the-scenes photographic journal.
