Description

Kelly the Rescue Dog A true recounting of the extraordinary life of Kelly, who is a working dog trained to find survivors in disaster areas, and her owner Simon. Centred on the events of the Turkish earthquake in August 1999, it uses fictional characters (except for Simon and Kelly of course!) to tell a powerful tale of the international effort that goes into rescuing people who are caught up in natural disasters. Supported by real photographs of Simon and Kelly, and information on the training and handling of experienced rescue dogs like Kelly, this title explores the theme of the relationship between humans and animals, and the terrific sense of achievement in the saving of ordinary lives. Year 4 title supporting the basic need for different text-types (non-fiction) reading in NLS. TreeTops now branching out into non-fiction, with the same high-quality that the fiction strands enjoy. These books contain full introduction and story background sections, narrative 'faction' text and full supporting contents, index and glossary.
