Consider This…..

by Liz E.

Consider asking yourself which animals you love most.  Which creatures have been your favorite your whole life?  Which critters are you most thankful for?

If owls are hooo-hoo you like the best, look to The Hidden Lives of Owls by Leigh Calvez.  Bird enthusiasts will love the vivid photographs and owl facts in the amazing birds of prey reference guide Owls of the World by Heimo Mikkola.

Most of us love dogs, and would love to know exactly what they think!  Lucky for us, we’ve got Alexandra Horowitz.  Horowitz became instantly popular with the release of Inside of a Dog.  Her newest puppy-prose is Being a Dog which explores the scent-skills of man’s (well, people’s) best friend.  Celebrate our dogs with Mary Oliver’s collection of poetry entitled Dog Songs.

Kids will enjoy Ribsy by Beverly Cleary or Sandra Boynton’s counting (and barking) book Doggies.  Don’t forget about Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo or family-favorite Marley and Me by John Grogan.


Maybe cats are more your style?!  Have your cats taken over your house?  Do they rule your home like a king or queen?  Well, you’ll enjoy The Lion in the Living Room by Abigail Tucker, which investigates the science and the humor behind this phenomenon.  Find your favorite feline friends on the internet in Cats on Instagram.  Kids will enjoy Pete the Cat books by James Dean or the just-released and perspective-perfect They All Saw a Cat written and illustrated by Brendan Wenzel.

In the season of Thanksgiving and always, we are thankful for our families, friends, animals, and pets.  Enjoy perusing Unlikely Friendships by National Geographic magazine writer Jennifer Holland.  See and feel the kindness and the love in our animal kingdom.


P.S.  Don’t forget, we welcome dogs in the store and have dog biscuits, too!
