Zoey Finds a Bunny Nest
A Backyard Adventure
Peggy Sue Hentz
When Zoey's dog, Max, finds a nest of baby cottontail rabbits, Zoey and her mom reach out to a wildlife rehabilitator for advice. Together they learn about cottontail nests and how to protect them.
This book includes a section for parents about what to do when encountering a cottontail nest.
Approximately 1/3 to 1/4 of animals presented to wildlife rehabilitators each year are baby cottontail rabbits. Many of these "orphans" are rescued by well-meaning people who think the nest has been abandoned.
"Zoey Finds a Bunny Nest" will help children and adults learn what to do when faced with this very common backyard situation.
Story and illustrations by a veteran wildlife rehabilitator, Peggy Hentz as an adventure in learning to live with wildlife.
Written in poetry style, Zoey Finds a Bunny Nest is both educational and entertaining.
“Mommy can I keep him
and raise him till he’s grown?
He’s the cutest little bunny
I think I’ve ever known.”
“That’s not a good idea.
I don’t think it’s wise
to try to make a pet
out of something that is wild.”
