Clara

Clara

by Emily Arnold McCully

Perfect for Common Core curriculums, CLARA is a book sure to fascinate young animal lovers, history buffs-in-the-making, and kids interested in geography, as they follow a rhinoceros on her 18th century journey across Europe. In detailed illustrations, McCully shows Clara being introduced to Louis XV of France, Frederick the Great of Germany and others willing to pay for a chance to stroke her soft lip. Her owner, a Dutch sea captain, keeps Clara fed (she eats 100 pounds of hay and 30 loaves of bread a day!) and watered (she drinks 14 buckets of water and beer) and takes loving care of her until her death 17 years later.
