Zoe Michal has had a passion for books since she was a child. In third grade, she won a trophy for reading the most books in the shortest amount of time. In addition to reading, Zoe and her sister, were great animal lovers, and would bring home stray dogs whenever they saw one. Luckily, Zoe’s mom loved dogs too. Zoe loves all animals, but is especially fond of dogs, giraffes and elephants. She has been a vegetarian for most of her life because animals are her friends. Zoe has now combined her love of gentle, kind and humorous books with her love of animals, by launching Give Back Books. For each loving picture book that is sold, a $1.00 is donated to an animal-welfare organization.

Me and my sister, Anna.  She’s the cute one with the “fountain” hairstyle.
