Animals and Teens The Ultimate Teen Guide by Gail Green

In Animals and Teens: The Ultimate Teen Guide, author Gail Green illustrates various situations in which young adults become involved with animals, including providing foster care, pursuing career opportunities, or simply raising pets at home. Green shows how animals can enhance teens' lives and how teens can improve the welfare of animals that face abuse or live in shelters and wildlife preserves. Green discusses what is involved in the handling of service animals, such as dogs that provide physical assistance or horses that help with therapy.


Offers some effective anecdotes by teens on how their own interaction with animals has enhanced their lives and provided them with a greater sense of responsibility, maturity and self-esteem...Teens will feel involved and moved by the heartfelt and sometimes saddening stories of animal care. A much more personal book. VOYA, June / July 2009 Illustrates through first-hand accounts how positive interactions with animals can contribute to higher self-esteem in teens, helping them break social barriers and develop compassion for other living creatures, and even reduce obesity. Chicagoland Tails, June 2009 A clear, teen-centric perspective... School Library Journal, May 2009
