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 “Walking with the Great Apes” by Sy Montgomery.
Pearl’s review: Clearly feathered beings are not the only species to be able to train the featherless beings to assist them. Bravo to these furred beings for their achievement! However, while the crispy-looking green thing is a nice touch, the cover art clearly needs some “livening up.” For a book with perfect cover art, I highly recommend this great book!
His mommy’s review: I guess I’m on a Sy Montgomery read-a-thon right now. I think it’s because I just didn’t realize how many books she has written about animals! Recently I read the inside flap of one of her books and was like – WHOA. So….this featherless being is one happy reader right now with her big stack of Sy books! Speaking of which, I love this book – I marvel at how Dian Fossey, Jane Goodall and Birute Galdikas have given up nearly every creature comfort life can offer to be with their respective charges, devoting their lives to understanding, conservation and empathy. My heroines, all three!
With love (& feathers),
