Book Review: Moto and Me


Moto and Me: My Year as a Wildcat's Foster Mom, by Suzi Eszterhas is an intriguing and informative book, which portrays a rare wildlife rescue story.

With full-color photographs featured throughout this book, Moto and Me focuses on the firsthand story of Eszterhas, a wildlife photographer, caring for an orphaned wildcat--serval--at the age of two weeks. Plus, there's a list of interesting facts titled All about Servals. 

According to the book summary, "The book chronicles Suzi's tender care of Moto, including how she feeds, bathes, and plays with him, and helps him develop hunting skills. Her goal is to help him learn how to survive on his own in the wild. After six months, he is ready to live--a difficult good-bye, but exactly what Suzi had worked for."

While featuring brilliant full-color photographs, Moto and Me is a delightful forty page non-fiction book, and it's geared toward children, particularly grades one to six.

 
Note: I received this book from NetGalley, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
