Love at First Bark by Julie Klam

“Klam follows her first dog-oir (You Had Me at Woof) with whimsical reflections on some of the dog rescues in which she’s participated. She finds the more she works with these dogs, the kinder she is to the two-legged creatures around her. A few lucky people are natural storytellers, and Klam is one of them. Not only am I sure she could make a visit to the dentist sound funnier than most jokes, but she’s also nearly convinced me that dogs can make you a better person.” —Library Journal, starred review

Deep Blue Home by Julia Whitty

I love the phrase “Intimate Ecology of our Wild Ocean”; it is a carefully worded sentence that perfectly sums up what this book is about. Whitty has been a passionate diver and writer her entire life, and you can feel this in every sentence of her book. She explores coastlines and undersea landscapes inch by inch, reveling in small details and vast histories. Sure to spur conversation about conservation and our species’ impact on the Earth’s dazzling and precious ecosystems.
