Mel Sobolewski is on the #ReadingWithYourKids #Podcast to celebrate her middle-grade novel titled "Second Chances," which focuses on animal rescue stories. Mel shares how the book's stories, while fictionalized, are rooted in real-life situations such as rescuing animals from wildfires, abandoned dogs, and animals facing various challenges. The stories touch on themes like bullying, disability, chosen families, and mental health, providing a platform for children to discuss and understand these important topics through the lens of animals. Mel also talks about her own journey into animal rescue, which began when she responded to a wildfire in Malibu, California. She recounts how that experience ignited her passion for animal rescue and led her to establish the Moonlight Mile Ranch, a real-life initiative aimed at helping animals and educating people about the connection between humans and animals. 
She emphasizes the power of using animals as examples to teach children about empathy, kindness, and acceptance, allowing them to relate to and discuss these issues more openly. Mel also mentions her plans to expand the Moonlight Mile Ranch and welcomes support and involvement from interested individuals. The interview highlights the profound impact that stories about animal rescue can have on children, encouraging them to become more compassionate and considerate individuals.
