In Sherry West’s children’s story of “It’s Raining Cats! It’s Raining Dogs! It’s Raining Bats! And Pollywogs!” you see all kinds of animals falling from the sky. There are animals from the zoo, farm, ocean, and jungle in the book.
“Walter the Wanderer” by Pavle Sabic is the fun story about an otter named Walter who goes exploring around the world. Walter lived with his family, but then a storm ruined their house. The family went exploring for a new place to live, and they stopped in Scotland. Walter had to get used to Scotland because they dress, talk, and play sports differently than he was used to. Walter got used to it and started liking it there.
