True Love is filled with uplifting stories from the animal kingdom and heartwarming accounts of animal emotions, friendships, romance, sibling and parent-child love. Author Rachel Buchholz, a longtime editor with National Geographic Kids magazine, has been collecting amazing animal stories for more than a decade and has gathered her favorites to show the many kinds of love that animals share, from inseparable best friends to romantically devoted duos. Touching photographs, inspiring animal facts, and meaningful quotes about love round out the book, making it a special way to show someone the true meaning of love.
The worldwide leader in animal photography, National Geographic brings us Mother's Love: Inspiring True Stories From the Animal Kingdom, a collection of the most moving and intimate portraits of animal mothers and their babies. Each photograph shows animal moms as they nurture, play, teach, and protect their young. Sprinkled throughout are inspirational quotes ("All I am I owe to my angel mother." Abraham Lincoln) and unbelievable true stories of maternal heroism, like the mother duck from Vancouver who persuaded a human passerby to rescue her ducklings from a storm drain. Page after page will touch your heart and remind us all of the valuable roles that mothers playboth in the wild and at home. A perfect gift for any budget, Mother's Love is a great way to celebrate Mother's Day, a new arrival, or any old day to show your mom how much you care.
True Love: Rachel Buchholz is the executive editor of National Geographic Kids and National Geographic Little Kids magazines in Washington, D.C. In her more than 15 years editing for the tween market she has learned that dogs love to skateboard, that ghosts live in the White House, that a stack of currency one mile high contains more than 14 million bills, and that if you’re in doubt, run a story about Harry Potter. Buchholz has helped the magazine’s 1.1 million readers set five Guinness World Records, and in the process of collecting large amounts of stuff has talked Cameron Diaz out of her sneakers (Longest Chain of Shoes) and Ben Stiller out of his jeans (Largest Collection of Clothes to Recycle). She is the author of the Children's Choice-nominated book How to Survive Anything: Shark Attack, Lightning, Embarrassing Parents, Pop Quizzes, and Other Perilous Situations and a former editor at Boys’ Life magazine in Dallas. Although she will tell you that she’s originally from Texas, documents reveal that Buchholz actually grew up in Oklahoma.
