For the Animal Lovers

We all know kids who are obsessed with animals. There's the kid who's read all the dinosaur books the Library has to offer, and is still hungry for more. Or the kid who can't stop watching videos of fluffy, adorable small mammals, who wants to know everything they can about them. I know all about these kids—because I was one of them (and in many ways, I still am).

If you're looking for something to entice your household animal lover over the long winter break, check out these movies and books at the Library.
