April & Mae and the Animal Shelter: The Thursday Book (Every Day with April & Mae #5) (Hardcover)

Fans of King & Kayla and Charlie & Mouse will love this delightful beginning chapter book series that celebrates friendship every day of the week!

It's Thursday, and April and Mae want to help the new animal shelter. Mae is good at helping with her hands, and April is better at helping with her words. While Mae plans a lemonade stand to raise money for cat food, April writes a letter to the newspaper encouraging pet adoption but wonders whether that will make a difference. Mae helps her to see that even little actions can contribute to change bit by bit!
With imagination and humor, Every Day with April & Mae brings all there is to know and love about friendship to life in a way kids can both relate to and learn from making this a perfect fit for young readers ready to step up from picture books.
