Baby Animals Live with Me by Pearl C. Rodgers - Hatch


By  Pearl C. Rodgers-Hatch

About The Book: Do you know what it's like to have playful, purring kittens pounce about with curious, sniffing puppies? Have you ever tried to wiggle your nose like a dwarf rabbit, as he hops, hops, hops? In this wonderful collection of children's poetry, Pearl C. Rodgers-Hatch describes the playful antics of small furry friends, delighting in their games and manners. As she and the animals agree to take in another resident, we see that her main lesson is one of compassion, a lesson no one is too young to learn. 

With its delightful illustrations, Baby Animals Live with Me is a collection that all children would love to read or have read to them by a loved adult.

About the Author: A native of Britain, Pearl C. Rodgers-Hatch currently lives in California with her husband, Stephen, where she works as an elementary daycare teacher. The mother of three, she enjoys writing, reading, tennis, interior design, and fashion display. 

My Thoughts: The poetry in this little book is fun, warm, and playful. Along with the cover illustration, no child could miss the message that it's so easy to love the baby animals in their world. Whether that animal be a rabbit, puppy, kitten, doesn't matter because they're all deserving of love and gentle attention. I also thought this was a wonderful learning tool, especially for home-schooled children. A vocabulary list with definitions appear in the back that match the words underlined throughout the story's pages. Entertainment and education are both strong points for this book.
