Publication Date: June 30th by Workman Publishing. L ast week when I picked up my library hold of Unlikely Friendships: 47 Remarkable Stories from the Animal Kingdom I knew that there would be no chance in me resisting the book after I got home and wouldn't you know it an hour and a half after I got in the door I was smiling and flipping the last page of the book.
I thought that this was a delightful read. It was quick to read with very cute heart warming stories from all walks of life in the animal kingdom from all over the globe. There are 47 different tales of inter-species friendships and each story is around pages long with accompanying photographs.
Each of the stories in the book brought their own merry cast of characters and I really enjoyed each and every one of them.
Unlikely Friendships: 47 Remarkable Stories from the Animal Kingdom
From the adopted iguana who made friends with his owner's cats to the elephant and the stray mutt. Big and small all the animals in the book demonstrated that animals do make friends, or at least companions in other creatures.
Maybe it's due to loneliness maybe because they're instincts kick in who knows. True the scientific community still scoffs at the idea that such friendships are possible but it isn't as though science hasn't been wrong before. I personally wonder if it is really up to us to make these decisions for our animal brethren and think that we should look at these situations as children do and not wonder about the meanings behind these animal wonders.
I thought this was a good book to read especially since I'm an animal lover.
At present I live with 2 cats, a golden retriever, 2 gerbils, 3 hamsters and 2 infuriating budgies. While not all my animals are friendly with one another they do sometimes demonstrate a certain tenderness for one another when when one is ailing. I would highly recommend this book to all the animal lovers out there and since the holidays are coming up this might just make the perfect Christmas gift for the animal lovers in your life. Also, I think this would work equally well for children and adults because of the animal theme.
See a Problem?
For children who are a bit younger I think this would help as a lesson on how friends of all shapes, sizes, etc. Really Liked it! Labels: 4 Stars , Animals , non-fiction , Review. Reviewing Shelf December 7, at PM.
