Children’s Books By Dave Marchetti

Dave Marchetti is the owner of Animal Experiences. He is extremely passionate about animals of all kinds and has been working with them for his entire life. His professional career started with him managing one of the largest pet stores in New England for many years. From there, he moved on to create educational and hands-on animal programs where he helps foster the love of animals with children and adults alike. The animals that Dave uses in his shows have served as inspiration for the children’s books he has written. His unique children’s books are available on the website or through the major online booksellers like Amazon.

Beyond the Traveling Animal Show

When he is not busy with his animal programs, Dave has a separate business where he builds, repairs, and maintains goldfish and koi ponds throughout Rhode Island and Massachusetts. This separate business is a great example of Dave’s commitment to fish and other animals.

Three Entertaining Titles

Watch out for Dave’s latest book about a lost baby turtle named Truman as he tries to find his way to the pond immediately after hatching. (Coming Soon!)

Dave’s goal is to provide stories that teach and entertain while encouraging young children to read.

Steve the Stickleback

What goes on beneath the surface of the water? Steve knows, and now children of all ages can get to know this quirky and endearing Stickleback.

Nestle’s Big Adventure

Nestle keeps sneaking out of his enclosure and keeps getting in trouble. Now, kids can follow Nestle around as he finds many adventures outside in the real world.

The Frog With Slippery Fingers

Poor Michael, as a tree frog he’s supposed to be able to hold onto anything. Sadly, his not-so-sticky feet aren’t good for much. This funny frog is sure to be a favorite of your little readers.
