BEASTLY BRAINS Exploring How Animals Think, Talk, and Feel

by | Read by Charon Normand-Widmer

Children Ages 12+ • 3.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

In this fascinating nonfiction audiobook, Castaldo discusses an array of scientific research on animal cognition in a language accessible to young people. The production opens with a spritely melody and an introduction that explains how brain size in relation to body size may impact intelligence. Charon Normand-Widmer narrates at a pace that is easy to follow. Her delivery is straightforward, and she lets the facts carry their own weight. A tone sounds, alerting the listener to facts or anecdotes, making it easier for to tune into the conclusions reached in the studies. Useful suggestions and resources are also provided for students interested in trying their own research. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2017]
