Railway Jack {Review}

The true story of Jim Wide and his service companion, Railway Jack is a warm, endearing tale.  When Jim looses his legs in a tragic accident at the train station, he also looses his job.  One day while observing a baboon at the market, Jim wonders if this animal can help him as well. As Jim regains his job, he finds that Jack is bright, hardworking and eager to please.  Together the two embark on a unique friendship.  Known as one of the original service animals, Jack finds his way into the community and Jim's heart.  A delightful story and beautifully illustrated, Railway Jack would make a wonderful book for any family looking to broaden their children's perspective.  As a homeschool mom, I love that the author included additional information in baboons, service animal history, additional internet resources, and more.  Railway Jack is much more than a picture book.  It is an invitation to another world.  I would whole hearted recommend this book.
