Wild Animal Stories A brief survey discussion and sharing of some favorites for young and old with a list of titles for kids of all ages. When you were a kid did you have a favorite animal story? Perhaps you enjoyed The Jungle Book, or Jack London's Call of the Wild? Or if you're a bit younger, how about Charlotte's Web, Chronicles of Narnia or The Tale of Despereaux? Susan P. Gateley, author of Twinkle Toes and the Riddle of the Lake will briefly introduce and survey animals in literature. Why are there so many animal stories? We'll discuss a few ideas on how literary animals can help us understand human nature. Please bring a favorite animal story to share and or read from.
