Am I Pig Enough for You Yet?: Voices of the Barnyard Hardcover – October 23, 2001
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Here are dozens of farmyard animals: chickens, cows, horses, mice, etc. and to complement these first class black and white photographs, short, smart quotes from the animals, themselves. In other words, we are let into the animals' thoughts via Blount.
One of my favorites is a calf with markings very much like a calico cat telling us, "My politics are simple: I feel/Strongly about one issue: veal..." The lamb, on the other hand, looking exactly as if he just escaped from F.A.O. Schwartz lets us know, "You will never know fully,/What it means to be woolly."
Both children and adults will find enjoyment in this lovely book.
A great book, but beware of the content for younger kids.
