This book review is by my about-to-be 3rd-grade son who had to read this book for school in August of 2012. Yes, I'm a mean homeschool teacher who assigns books and book reports all summer long.
Bushfire by Bindi Irwin
The book Bushfire by Bindi Irwin is about a group of people who
have to help animals from a fire. The people in the story are Richard,
he is a vet who is Rosie's dad. Bindi is the daughter of Steve Irwin
and she owns the Australia Zoo. Rosie is Bindi's best friend.
At the start of the book, Bindi, her friend Rosie, and Rosie's dad
Richard were hiking in the Australian mountains. They saw smoke in the
distance so the rushed back home to help out at the animal hospital that
Richard works at. Then they went to help out at the fire line. While
at the fireline someone brought in a burn echidna and a burnt pregnant
koala. The girls brought those two and other animals back to the
hospital where they helped take care of them.
In the end,
the fire got put out by rain. The momma koala died from her injuries
but the baby survived and so did the echidna. Bindi and Rosie worked as
hard as the grown-ups to save the animals. The animals were important
to them so they were willing to work hard. Bushfire was a good book and
I would like to read more of Bindi's Wildlife Adventures.
