Becoming a Good Creature

School is not the only place to find a teacher. In this picture book adaption of Sy Montgomery and Rebecca Green’s New York Times national bestselling HOW TO BE A GOOD CREATURE, learn the many surprising lessons animals have to teach us about friendship, compassion, and how to be a better creature in the world.

Sy Montgomery has had many teachers in her life: some with two legs, others with four, or even eight! Some have had fur, feathers, or hooves. But they’ve all had one thing in common: a lesson to share

The animals Sy met on her many world travels have taught her how to seek understanding in the most surprising ways, from being patient to finding forgiveness and respecting others. Gorillas, dogs, octopuses, tigers and more all have shown Sy there are no limits to the empathy and joy we can find in each other if we only take the time to connect.

Based on the New York Times bestselling adult memoir, HOW TO BE A GOOD CREATURE, Sy and Rebecca’s beautiful, friendly guide is for readers young and old who wish to be a good creature in the world. Go ahead, pass it on.
