“I read this wonderful book to my granddaughter's on a Saturday and we all loved it! The cover is what grabbed our attention first and the other illustrations through out the book. I loved the story about Doc and all the animals he had in his backyard and how he helped them and loved them. And how Margie got her glasses was pretty neat also, I don't want to give the whole story away but we sure did like it! We talked about all it all weekend about having that many animals. I will definitely buy more of Virginia K. White's books, easy chapter books to read for seven year olds.” —★★★★★ Reader Review
