Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-5-McKinney presents the ecological food chain in a rhyming story. Couplets are frequently sketchy or vague. For example, in describing an owl, she writes, "Her wide yellow eyes, designed for the night,/get their glow from the reptile, captured in flight." Some rhymes are forced ("The vulture is known as a great opportunist/that preys on the fallen if finding it soonest") making the explanation of the links in the food chain even more confusing. Wallace's illustrations done in oil paints are large and colorful, showing fine details of birds, mammals, insects, and plants in their natural surroundings. There is no glossary to explain words such as "phytoplankton" and "zooplankton" and the rhymes that constitute the table of contents sacrifice understanding ("Link Number One-Born in the Sun"). Rice investigates the question of whether animals experience feelings such as compassion, loyalty, grief, deceitfulness, and love. Chapters are arranged by attribute. Although Calvert's illustrations are large and colorful, the text on each page is dense and daunting. Three out of 13 sources cited in the bibliography are old Reader's Digest articles (1964-79) with incomplete references. There is no table of contents, index, or glossary. All in all, there is not much coherent information in these titles.

Although I'm 57, not 13, I love the new book-for-all-ages DO ANIMALS HAVE FEELINGS, TOO? This remarkable book is required reading for everyone who loves animals, and also for those who need lessons in compassion. I can't imagine a better Christmas gift for Grandma, Aunt Susie, or a favorite teacher. (Maybe a child's LEAST favorite teacher should have one, too.) Superbly illustrated by Trudy Calvert, a noted wilflife artist, the book begs to be petted; your fingers will automatically run over every hair of these delightful animals. The author has managed to teach a valuable lesson of compassion for all living things, incredibly important in this sometimes emotionally barren world. Long after you close the book, the illustrations and the message haunt you. What more can you ask of a unique, loving book?

This book is a good tool to get kids to discuss feelings and to describe their views and own experiences. It presents emotional themes such as compassion, loyalty, grief, and others, while giving animal examples and then asking questions. Although there are examples of animals choosing the opposite responses to those presented (gorillas in captivity have attacked people, etc.) the book is a good tool for sparking dialog and breaking through the old concept that animals don't have emotions.

I bought several copies of this book. It's a great way to generate discussion with children about character traits like compassion and loyalty. The stories are so interesting (and true) and the illustrations are good, too. There are questions for discussion. I read this book to my granddaughter's 3rd grade class and the kids (and the teacher) loved it. I highly recommend the book.
