About the Author
N.E. Colby has always had a love for animals. From a young age, she was rescuing strays and adopting animals that needed a good home. N.E. Colby and her husband have been able to pass along their love of animals to their children. They enjoy taking trips to Zoos every year for birthdays and just because all while talking about the care required of little creatures that cannot care for themselves. They understand the importance of teaching children from a young age that caring for living things other than themselves will have an important impact on how they develop relationships in the future. While always having a love for reading with her children and the desire to write children’s books, N.E. Colby decided that the best book to write was something close to her heart. The Junior Zoo Vet series draws from her greatest inspiration, her children and their love of zoos.
