Animal books for 10-11 year olds

December 8, 2012

41PUIrAtDWL__SL160_If you are looking for a great stocking filler for Christmas for a 10 or 11 year old child who loves animals try “Skyhawk” by Gill Lewis. Set in the highlands of Scotland, it is a tale of  loyalty and hope in which two children, Iona and Callum become firm friends while protecting a rare bird of prey.

Kate Humble of the  BBC’s Springwatch and Autumnwatch says this book is  “An edge-of-your-seat wildlife adventure that tells a very human story of friendship, discovery and an incredible journey.” See “Skyhawk” reviews and buy at Amazon.

Gill’s second book, ”White Dolphin” is just as exciting. The author is a vet and her interest in wildlife and caring for our natural world comes through clearly in both her novels. Buy this book for a child who loves animals – they will not be disappointed. See “White Dolphin” reviews and buy at Amazon

(Probably suitable only for age 10+ as both books have sad/tragic parts to them).
