“Welcome Home, Margot Flamingo” – Book Reading and Signing with Jennifer Horner

HSC's Animal Resource Center
February 18, 2024
11:00 am — 2:00 pm

Join children's author Jennifer Horner as she reads her heartwarming book, "Welcome Home, Margot Flamingo."

"Welcome Home, Margot Flamingo" is more than a children’s picture book—it's a tool for families and educators to teach the lessons needed to build a lasting bond with a new friend: patience, empathy,
understanding, and love.

This story supports children learning how to interact with pets while also guiding parents and educators to teach these important life lessons.

Children will learn:

  • The importance of preparing their home for a pet to feel safe and welcomed.
  • How to recognize important cues from a dog's body language to help them
    better understand how a dog may be feeling.
  • An introduction into positive reinforcement training that they can help with.
  • To practice empathy—seeing the world through the eyes of their pet.
  • That caring for and training their dog isn’t just for grown ups!

Meet Jennifer at the Humane Society of Charlotte (HSC) for a fun reading and book signing! Every book sold will directly benefit the animals at HSC, making it a chance to nurture both literary and furry friends.

Don't miss this enriching experience for the whole family!
