Here at Casa Feathers n Beak, reading is a flock-wide tradition.
While some of us like to focus on the words on the page, while others of us prefer to focus on the crispiness of those pages, it is safe to say no book entering this household lacks for attention.
So Pearl thought it would be a great idea to combine his literary knowledge with his mommy’s typing skills to share more about books we both love – just in time for your weekend reading list!
This week, the book is “Raised by Animals” by Jennifer Verdolin, PhD
Pearl’s review: Hmmm. Well, I can see how there would be great benefits if feathered beings were able to raise and train featherless beings right from the start. So efficient, so effective! However, I would have picked a feathered cover model family just to really bring home this point (everyone knows featherless beings need lots of visual cues). Speaking of which, for a great read on this very topic, I highly recommend this book!
His mommy’s review: I adored Dr. Verdolin’s first book, “Wild Connection,” and I am equally loving reading this one! She just has this really unique way of connecting animal and people behavior that makes me able to grasp scientifically what otherwise I can only feel by gut instinct – that we are much more alike than we are different. Such a gift. I love her work!
With love (& feathers),
Shannon & Pearl
