Cali & Wildfire – A Story of Love

by Bill Neal

Book - Cali & Wildfire - A Story of Love“Cali & Wildfire – A Story of Love” is a brilliant addition to the children’s-lit genre. Set against the backdrop of the cruel horseracing industry, it is the tale of a very young girl who saves an unwanted racehorse. Bill Neal has masterfully weaved a story that both affirms children’s innate feelings of kindness and compassion, and, more importantly, shows them how those feelings can be applied – how they, even at a young age, can help make the world a better place. Concentrating on empathy, dedication, and perseverance when helping animals, this is a must read book for young children, and should be added to any collection teaching humane education.
