“Charming. . . . A memoir and how-to about enriching the world of the creatures in your life, whether they be dogs, cats, or the crows in your backyard. . . . The book details basic animal behavior as well as practical humane solutions to common animal-human conflicts (cats scratching furniture, moles destroying your lawn). It also has craft projects for those of us with great intentions and no skills.”
—New York Times
“A guide to understanding animals and treating them with respect. . . . While the book is about loving and caring for animals, it also follows Tracey’s path to happiness through animals.”
—Gayle King on CBS This Morning
“Stewart has a heart as big as all outdoors, which is helpful since her caring largesse extends to moles and squirrels, goats and sheep, as well as the more-commonplace cats and dogs. A lifelong animal lover and one-time veterinary technician, Stewart evinces a genuine empathy for all creatures, from the lowliest frog to the loftiest owl, and winsomely guides other animal enthusiasts in their desire to develop a more rewarding relationship with man’s best friend, whatever that turns out to be. An ardent proponent for the adoption of rescue animals, Stewart broadens that philosophy to include sanctuaries for farm animals as well. Married to former host of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart, who announced their plan to create just such a haven for at-risk animals, Stewart is on a mission far above the typical, nominal celebrity cause du jour. Rich in informed insights on animal behavior, augmented by creative craft projects, and alluring with clever watercolor illustrations, Stewart’s passionate and practical guide to living with domestic pets, backyard critters, and farm animals artfully combines sensible advice with grassroots advocacy. Stewart’s zeal for animal welfare is infectious and sincere, and her desire to create a kinder world for animals and humans is earnest and essential.”
—Booklist, starred review
“A one-of-a-kind mix of info, advice, philosophy and hands-on activities.”
—Philadelphia Daily News
“Gives readers not only facts and advice, but also smart and caring ways to improve animals’ existences.”
“With humor and grace, this beautiful and inspiring book helps us to understand and appreciate animals and encourages us to treat them with compassion and respect . . . How we treat other animals is a reflection of who we are, and this wonderful book helps us to be kinder, better people.”
—Gene Baur, co-founder and president, Farm Sanctuary
“This book is a dazzling confluence of art, heart, and animal welfare information. Informative, thought-provoking, and charming, Do Unto Animals is a gentle call to action for animal lovers of all ages that fully embodies Stewart’s vital message: If we all do a little better, a lot of good is possible.”
—Susan Friedman, PhD, Behaviorworks.org
“I love this book. Superbly illustrated, beautifully written, and with a profound message that everyone needs to hear. Do Unto Animals has an entertaining, instructional, and compassionate message about the animals with whom we live and share this planet. From dogs and cats to birds and horses (even earthworms and bees), the story of life and living together is skillfully woven into the finely illustrated tapestry of this missive. With lighthearted humor and heartfelt sincerity, Tracey Stewart tell it the way it is—or rather the way it should be—when it comes to our understanding and interactions with animals. Two paws up (or feet, hooves, or talons)!”
—Dr. Nicholas H. Dodman, director of the Animal Behavior Clinic at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University

Finding the right pet is not as uncomplicated as one might assume and when you do find your forever friend the most important action for the rest of their life is proper care and maintenance. You may know the basics but this book provides the depth of how to provide a loving and efficient home that is geared toward the pet you have chosen.
This book is also a reminder that all of the creatures roaming this earth have a purpose and it is our responsibility to respect every single one of them regardless of whether they are appealing to us or not.
Tracey Stewart illuminates many interesting aspects of various creatures as well as a handy guide about how to interact with them and read their body language. And instead of simply saying "Do this with cows," you get a nice overview of what it is cows might want out of their existence. Worms and bees and squirells and even my favorite - bats - are all covered here. If you are a nature lover, you'd love this book. And if you're not a nature lover, you'll turn into one before you've finished. It would also be appropriate for kids.
One small thing - a small typo, since it just came out today I thought you might want to know. When you're talking about Enzo, you talk about him being a fur covered hot water heater, and I think you mean hot water bottle.
