I really love books which tap into those parts of young minds that like to dream of future careers. Most young girls I know at one stage or another want to either be a wildlife worker, animal rescuer or vet…and fortunately some young people grow up and realise these dreams! The ‘Juliet Nearly a Vet’ series is perfect for all animal loving, vet dreaming young readers and author Rebecca Johnson is an award winning Science teacher, so you can be assured that all animal information is pretty spot on. I am always happy knowing that someone with a bit of nous about them has written books which contain medical, Scientific or educational subjects. Juliet is 10 and the series is perfect for independent readers from 7 (although Pudstar has only really got into them now at 8) or they could be read alouds from about 6 for animal loving little ones. ‘Juliet Nearly a Vet’, of course, also fits rather beautifully with the push on girls in Science and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths). But more than this, it’s just a darned great series; well written; nice mix of fact and fiction; strong female characters abound…and there is lots in the series with more to come…so reading is sorted for months!
