Saving Lilly Erin and her best friend David didn't know much about the treatment of circus animals, until they worked together on a TAG - Talented and Gifted - Project.

Saving Lilly

Erin and her best friend David didn't know much about the treatment of circus animals, until they worked together on a TAG - Talented and Gifted - Project. Due to this report, Erin and David refuse to go on a field trip that their teacher has planned. Sure, field trips are great, but one to the Glitter Tent Circus is awful! The Glitter Tent Circus is one of the worst circuses out there because of its HORRIBLE animal cruelty. But Mrs. Dawson is defiantly going to give her students something to remember; just as she remembers the times she spent at the circus when she was a child and went to the same circus with her grandpa. In fact, she's so determined to make her students attend the circus, that she sends Erin and David to the principal's office when they try to pass around a petition asking other kids to skip the field trip too!

Well, finally, Erin and David post a sit-in for the circus. Only three kids go to the circus, so all the other 25 students stay in class to find a way to save Lilly, the circus elephant that is being mistreated. They must raise $8,000 in one month!!! But somehow, they do it, and they live happily ever after!

Saving Lilly is a wonderful book. Peg kerhet took out of her time to write this fantastic book, Saving Lilly. At the beginning of the story, in April on a Monday Mrs. Dawson told her class hat if they read 11 book each by May 10th. They will go on a surprise field trip. Mrs. Dawson will not tell her class what the field trip will be. Now this was exciting to them because they mostly never go on field trips. Erin and David don't want to go on this field trip. To find out read the book.

If you like sad and happy books at the same time then this is the book for you. Saving Lilly was an adored and beloved story. It is like you are within the action, with Erin, David or Lilly the elephant. Now this is a MUST read book.

The author, Peg Kehet is trying to tell all of the readers that read the book Saving Lilly. If you believe in something you should stick with it and not, not do it and always tell the way you feel. Listen to the author and believe in yourself. Saving Lilly read it!

What a FANTASTIC book!! My seven year old daughter and I read this together and it was truly inspiring. I've always refused to bring my kids to any venue where animals are forced to do tricks for profit. I tell my kids you will learn the most about an animal by watching its behavior in the wild! I love this book because the kids were intelligent, team-players who got the job done!. There was no pointless potty-humor (tired of kids acting like morons in some kids-books) so this was yet another book by Peg Kehret that was a breath of fresh air. She is a wonderful story-teller!

This is a wonderful book for animal lovers especially! I really enjoyed this book! I would recomend this book to any of my friends! Here are the main events in this book: There are two kids who are in a TAG class( which is for very smart kids). Their teacher assigned a project for them on the base of circus animal cruelties. Meanwhile in their classroom their teacher is planning a suprise feild-trip if they and their class reads 300 books by a certain date. When they read all the books they had to they found out where their feild trip was going to take place. Please read this book to find out who Lilly is and more!
This book is GREAT!! Saving Lilly is an excellent book for animal lovers. It is about a girl named Erin who wants to save all circus animals including an Asian Elephant called Lilly, from harsh whips, little food, and dirty cages. Erin and her entire class work very hard to help them. I love this book because it shows that when something bad is happening, and you don't like it, you complain about it instead of taking action! Somtimes in this book I felt like cheering on for Erin's class! This book has a great way of "hooking" you in.
