|candicegarcia||Few people have a phobia of animals touch. It's great to hear that you are an animal lover, Even I am also fond of newborn animals, Cat is one of my favorite animal at house. My 5 Year old Melville Preschool going niece is, also an animal lover, she loves reading animal books like Baa Humbug, Black beauty, Buddy Unchained,etc. In her preschool, there is one pet house, her teachers takes all students at pet house once in a week.I am glad to know which animal books you often read.|

My absolute favorite is Wesley the owl by Stacey O'Brien. It's ''The remarkable love story of an owl and his girl'' She rescues a wild barn owl who can no longer survive in the wild on his own due to injury. They have a beautiful soul connection that only grows with time. It reminds us of how precious life is and how two different species can learn to trust, love and communicate. This is why rescue animals are so rewarding. Bring a tissue, it's beautiful.
I loved this book so much that I actually painted a tribute to Wesley for my home.

So I totally didn't realize how old this thread was until now. But I definitely have to second Redwall - it's seriously SO GOOD. I feel like re-reading the first few books now!
And my favorite animal-related kid's books is definitely "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie!"

It does take more than a few pages to actually explore the arguments for eating meat, which most animal rights books don't do. A lot of the book is pretty general in scope, but some of it gets really into statistics and their implications about factory farming, and there are sources you can check if you feel the need. I recommend it.

Kavik the Wolf Dog was a favorite of mine when I was younger, since it was a survival/Homeward Bound/White Fang type story.
I loved survival stories, especially those that dealt with relationships between humans and animals. Island of the Blue Dolphins is still one of my favorite books of all time. Life of Pi was a good book too--especially the revelations at the end.
Black Beauty has probably been read by everyone, but I also love it so, so much.

|CashmereSkeleton||I guess not *strictly* about animals but I highly, highly recommend the Farseer Trilogy by Robin Hobb (Assassin's Apprentice, Royal Assassin and Assassin's Quest) In it some of the characters have 'bonds' with certain animals and can speak to them and hear their thoughts etc and I just love that idea...|

I still need to read Redwall!! And I used to want to read the Warriors series too. I might have to read them eventually anyway. I still like a lot of "kid" books, and still have most of my old childhood series. Semi-animal-related, I still adore the Animorphs series. I own the entire series and still reread it more often than I probably should.
Glad that this thread is still getting a few suggestions and that it's helped others find new books to read! Feel free to keep suggesting books! Also feel free to share thoughts on a book that you read from seeing it suggested here or any recent books you've read, whatever!
