" I received a copy of this book from Macmillan Children's Publishing Group via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. " said.

" Great adaptation for kids, especially recommended for kids 9+ who are interested in animal rights and want to read books that are no too report-y. " said.

" A great read for young and old alike! A grand adventure of animal feelings and behavior. Yes, animals have feelings! Everyone should read this book! " said.

" Loved this book! So important a great read. The young reader's edition is very accessible and engaging. I can't wait to read the adult version and will definitely be recommending this to my young patrons! " said.

"Very simply and eloquently, the author describes how humans are more like elephants and orcas than one might assume. Safina does a lovely job of describing both land and sea mammals in a way that makes clear they are their own species, but also in a way that strips humans of the long-standing arrogant assumption that we are so very special.

Parts of the book are incredibly sad. The cruelty that humans have visited on other species, and even on ourselves, is overwhelming. But the portrayal of elephant and orca families is deeply touching and fascinating.

Read simultaneously with How to Be a Good Creature by Sy Montgomery. It’s a good pairing.

"In a quiet, almost meditative fashion, Carl Safina explores the natural world, focusing on those enormous animals that fascinate most of us--elephants and whales. It might seem surprising to pair the two species in a book like this, but the pairing works. The text reveals the author's sense of wonder at these animals and their behavior toward one another and to humans. Curious at first as to how they are like humans, eventually Safina began exploring what the animals were like as well as what they were like and what they were feeling. There are some photographs, a couple of them double-page spreads, and I certainly wish there were more. Anyone who cares about animals and is concerned with how some humans treat them or how their environment is being destroyed will want to read this book, a young reader adaptation of the book for older readers. As I finished it, I found myself sitting quietly and wondering about the emotions animals feel. While they might not have words to communicate, they clearly have other ways to do so. " said.
