A BOY AND A JAGUAR
FEATURED BOOK:

A BOY AND A JAGUAR by Alan Rabinowitz

From the man Time Magazine calls "the Indiana Jones of wildlife conservation" comes a charming and emotional tale about a stuttering boy who promises to find his voice so he can speak for animals and people who cannot speak for themselves.

Dr. Alan Rabinowtiz has dedicated his life to two causes: protecting the world's thirty-six wildcat species and advocating for stutterers as a spokesperson for the Stuttering Foundation of America. His conservation work has been chronicled in the New York Times, Scientific American, Audobon, Outside, Jerusalem Report and National Geographic Explorer, among others. His latest NPR segment can be heard here.
