It’s time for another adventure for Roxi the Rescue Dog.
On Friday, South Delta author Carolyn Drew launched the fifth book in her Roxi the Rescue Dog humane education children’s book series.
Her newest book, Roxi the Rescue Dog Helps the Cows, is an age-appropriate animal rights story that raises awareness of factory farming and dairy cows used for milk.
An entertaining story that empowers kids to make compassionate life choices by trying plant-based milks, this story is full of kid-friendly content, bright illustrations, and humourous happenings as Roxi gets into mischief along the way.
Here is a bit more on the story in the words of Drew: “Roxi is a rescue dog with a nice life. She wants all the animals in the world to have a nice life too. In this story, Roxi heads down Cow-MOO Road where she finds happy cows and sad cows. With her Superhero powers and her message about kindness, can Roxi save the sad dairy cows?”
As reported previously in the Optimist, Drew created the Roxi series to raise awareness of animal welfare issues around the world. She hopes to reduce animal cruelty through humane education and compassionate messaging.
“When I started I did have some ideas of other animals that I could maybe help with some books, but I didn’t know how receptive the books would be,” she said. “Every time I released a book, I received more and more input, I learned more, got encouragement from people and to see an actual product complete that encouraged me to press on. I do dive deeper into the moral and ethical issues as I have moved along. This is my first all vegan book, which is quite a step. It will appeal to some people and not others, but that’s important to me. I’m excited to see where this one goes because it does touch upon the vegan aspect and animal welfare.”Drew can be contacted at RoxiBooks@gmail.com and followed on Instagram @roxi.the.rescue.dog.books.
