Books: Unlikely Animal Friendships

May 08, 2012



Feel the tenderness through the screen?
Nothing in common.
Yet.
Bonded.

Loyalty, compassion, acceptance.

What joy to share these
charming mini-books which unveil
true tales of animal stories by
J e n n i f e r   H o l l a n d.

Unexpected friendships (really!)
spring to life in a new series just for kids:
(Workman,  June 2012).





As beautiful as animal friendship is,
I was moved to ponder in a deeper sense,
the loveliness of unlikely human friendships.

Unlikely.
Unexpected.
Unhindered.

Interspecies friendships keenly ignite
the imagination, do they not?





A wee reminder to
KEEP WONDER and ACCEPTANCE
ALIVE IN YOUR LIFE EVERYDAY.
And never ever feel foolish for letting it shine through.

We will never be too old to be awed, yes?

Peace to you right where you are.

  7. This is the sweetest most tender thing I have seen in a long long time. Talk about melting your heart....I love that they are in a book. We need to look at these pictures and take the cue......acceptance, don't judge, patience and tolerance are something the human race needs a lot more of, we can learn from these animals. Have a great day Michele:)

  11. We can learn so much from our furry friendsl! A little more compassion and no judgement. Animals seem to accept just about everything including pain and sickness. What a touching post Michele!
