Award-winning photographer Annie Marie Musselman has made a career of capturing images of wild animals not in the wild, from the injured and rehabilitating residents of the Arlington-based Sarvey Wildlife Care Center (featured in her 2014 book, Finding Trust), to the canines of Wolf Haven International, an 82-acre sanctuary with captive breeding and recovery programs. Lobos is a nonfiction collab between Musselman and nature writer Brenda Peterson that follows a family of endangered Mexican gray wolves (lobos) on their journey from the sanctuary to their release in the Mexican wilderness, from pups to adults, and touches on wolf characteristics and behavior, and the challenge of reintroducing an endangered species to the wild. It’s geared at kids (ages 5 to 9), and if you’ve seen Musselman’s photos, you’ll know this is likely a strong addition to your child's library.
