Animals Welcome

Looking for a perfectly delightful book to warm your heart?  Then Animals Welcome: A Life of Reading, Writing, and Rescue is the one for you!  Written by award-winning children’s author Peg Kehret, this book takes you into her personal life.  This wonderful non-fiction book tells the many stories of a variety of animals Peg and her husband Carl have rescued and helped along life’s way.  Each chapter is a story of a stray’s rescue and recovery.  Even wild deer, elk, opossums, and a variety of birds are featured.  The many photos truly enhance each chapter.

Following the sudden death of her husband Carl, Peg turned his workshop into a foster home for rescued cats.  This, along with family, friends and her many beloved animals, helped restore joy and purpose to her life.  Animal lovers, young and old, will enjoy this book.  By the way, Peg Kehret’s book Ghost Dog Secrets is one of Kansas’s William Allen White Award nominees for 2013. Happy reading!
