Two Bobbies book cover
Two Bobbies
Authors: Kirby Larson and Mary Nethery
Illustrated by:  Jean Cassels

This is a good book about friendship and survival. The story is about a dog and a cat who become friends when their home town, New Orleans, is struck by Hurricane Katrina. 

Bobbie the dog and Bob the cat depend on one and another to survive when they are abandoned by their owners during the hurricane. Many people lost everything. But Bobbie dog and Bob cat have each other. The cat is blind, and the dog is her eyes.  

After four months of wandering around, they come across a construction site, where a worker takes pity on them and takes them to an animal shelter. 

This is a great book at explaining the hurricane so that children will understand the devastation that nature can sometimes inflict upon us.
