Every now and then along comes a book that is that is special. This is that book. I didn't devour this book. I savored it chapter by chapter, creature by creature,,,,much like I savor those tender, special moments with creatures I've know in my own life. Yes, there is loss included in the book but don't let that scare you aware from reading it. Sy Montgomery doesn't write about loss in the way that some writers do. Instead she celebrates the life and then describes how she heals from the loss (and as painful as it is, we all do). Read this book. Read this book. Read this book. Read for the magic of it. Read to know that all creatures: humans, dogs, pigs, octopus, spiders, birds...all creatures, have emotions and souls. Read this book. #netgalley #howtobeagoodcreature
