Just over a year ago, in my very first author interview, when I introduced you to Rebecca Johnson and her award winning Insect Series, I shared the following information about her publications and awards:
Since then, Rebecca’s list of publications has continued to grow, including two new series of books:
Vet Cadets “an exciting new four book series for smart, animal and science-loving girls who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty!”
First Facts “designed to give children a clear understanding of the six main groups of animals.”
Rebecca’s popular junior fiction series Juliet nearly a Vet, for readers from about 7 years of age, continues to attract attention. The series features ten-year-old Juliet who believes she is nearly a vet after watching her mother, who is a vet, at work.
Rebecca’s purpose in telling these stories is to blend science with fiction in a way that engages children’s interest in wildlife and nature. She does it successfully. In 2014, the fourth in the series Bush Baby Rescue won the Wilderness Society Environment Award for Children’s Literature. This year, the most recent title Rainforest Camp received the same award.

What a great series for children. I love the idea about introducing science and fiction to encourage kids to think about natural world. How lovely it would be to work beside your mom.

I’m sure you would enjoy these books, Patricia. Juliet is very lucky getting to work alongside her Mum, and Rebecca was very fortunate to live next door to such a generous vet who guided and taught her.
