This book is perfect for good readers who are new to chapter books (or those who've been reading them for some time) due to the larger print, and occasional Bishkek and white illustrations to break up the text. The cute picture of the kitten on the front captures the readers interest if they like animals. Perfect for young animal lovers. This book tells the tale of a little girl who is unhappy to be moving from York to live with her grandmother until she discovers Animal Ark. Here she begins to help animals, this book tells the reader about for kittens which she rescues and needs to track down their mother...can she find her in time? A lovely book, not too challenging and provides some animal care tips along the way. My son can't wait to read more in the series.

This is an amazing book!  It was interesting and had lots of adjectives and now I now so much abut cute fluffy lost dogs and what to do with them - just take them to Animal Ark!  My favourite character was Mandy because she knew lots about animals and she checked the microchips on them.  It took me quite a long time to read this book by myself, but it was worth it in the end.

Emily love cats and kittens so was instantly attracted to the cute kitten on the front of the book. She’s just starting to read longer books - this was a nice length with good sized text. She enjoyed the story and the helpful tips on caring for animals! I think she will enjoy other books from the series.

Animal Ark, New 1: Kitten Rescue: Book 1 9781408354148
5 stars
I read this book to my Son although he could have read this himself as it was a nice length with clear text and good size font.

The book tells the story of Amelia who is new to the countryside and has just moved to live with her Gran with her Mum after her parents have divorced.  She is unsure how she is going to settle in the country but soon makes many friends both human and animal and realises a love for animals and a desire to prove she can work in the vets surgery.

Great books for animal lovers.  We are really excited to look at reading more books in the series.

Amelia is dealing with moving to a small village with her mum after her parents' divorce. She loves animals and decides she wants to help at Animal Ark, the village vet. They think she is too young. She then befriends a boy named Sam and his dog Mac, who needs help being trained. The pair discover a family of abandoned kittens, which leads to a race against time to save them and find the mother. I won't spoil the ending, but I will say that there were some parts of part resolved. Other parts were left open to be addressed in the sequels. I was actually glad everything wasn't tied up in a neat bow so that there can be later developments.
My daughter is 5 and can't read chapter books independently. So I read it to her. She was struggling with the pace of the story at the beginning. But once the kittens were found, her interest grew rapidly. This could be an issue for other children, so encourage them to keep going. She has now wanted it read more frequently and really wants to know what is going to happen to the kittens.

The story focuses on Amelia who is upset about moving away to live with her mum and grandma after her parents divorce. Then she comes across Animal Ark where animals go to be looked after and she falls in love with some kittens who have been abandoned by their mum.

It was a wholesome and very innocent story and reminded me of the kinds of books I would read as a young girl and had a real touch of nostalgia for me. There were some lovely illustrations along the way too.

On the whole I thought this book was great at not only telling a story but also helping children to learn what is involved with the taking care of animals

This is a perfect book for readers transitioning from picture books.  Nice big type and lots of illustrations peppered throughout.  A charming story about Amelia, who has just moved with her Mum to live with her grandma.  She’s worried about settling into the village and is missing her previous home in York.  Thankfully she discovers “Animal Ark” the local vets and is keen to help out.  When she discovers four kittens, at her new friend Sam’s house, the race is on to find their mother and save their lives.  A new love for all things animal is born.
With lots of animal care tips this is the perfect book for little animal lovers.

I read it to Sunshine aged 7 aged 7 & to Bramble aged 5 aged 5
Animal Ark, New 1: Kitten Rescue: Book 1 9781408354148
3 stars
The kids loved this story but I wasn't so keen. However it tells the story of a little girl who's family have split up & she has to move. She soon discovers new friends through animals & thinks she will like her new home after all. It appeals to animal lovers as some kittens have lost there mother so Amelia & her friend go off to find her. It teaches care of animals too. Is a short enough story to keep attention & also not too long for young readers. Voting from the girls gave it 10 out of 10.

I read this to my niece but she got bored half way through, I think maybe the book was a little bit old for her ( she’s 5) she likes books with colourful pictures and this one did have pictures but they were quite small and in black and white. She really liked the front cover picture of the kitten
