all about animals @your Library

The Bracebridge Public Library offers a wide variety of non-fiction books about animals. We have true stories, practical guides, scientific explorations and much more!

Colin Butcher’s book Molly follows the true account of former police officer Colin and untrained cocker spaniel Molly as they work together to become an incredible pet-finding duo. Working together the pet detectives reunite lost pets with their owners. This book follows the duo as they gain success and face adversity in the pursuit of missing pets.

Feed The Birds by Chris Earley provides a comprehensive look into backyard bird watching. Brimming with coloured pictures, this book is able to give a lot of information in short paragraphs, making this an easy read. Additionally, this book gives information on how to understand the appearance and behavior of different bird species.

Alexandra Horowitz, Head of the Dog Cognition Lab at Barnard College, explores the complexity of the dog-human relationship in her book Our Dogs, Ourselves. In this book Horowitz looks at how the dog-human relationship plays out scientifically, culturally and legally. This book will expand your understanding of the dog-human relationship.

In their new book Wildhood, Harvard evolutionary biologist Barbara Natterson-Horowitz and science writer Kathryn Bowers take an interspecies look at adolescence. In their book they look at the four main challenges faced by teenagers, human and otherwise: staying safe, finding your place in the social hierarchy, understanding sexuality, and how to become self-reliant.

These are just a few of the great non-fiction animal books available at the Bracebridge Library. Our Information Librarians are always happy to help you with your selection.
