Narrator Hayden Panettiere's buoyant voice is a perfect match for these inspiring stories of animal empathy. Author Belinda Recio has organized chapters by animal type: elephant, dog, cat, parrot, pig, and others. Panettiere, with the spark of a seasoned storyteller, gives each creature its heroic due. Crow protecting kitten, elephant rescuing rhino, seal saving human--she narrates each account with punches of hope, positivity, and gratitude. The listener savors the sweetness of each story, many of which Recio fortifies with scientific data. Panettiere's engaging delivery enhances the author's thesis: Science should recognize that animal rescue anecdotes are not simply anthropomorphic, as traditionally thought; instead, they could represent data on altruism in other species. An informative pdf, with substantial images, text, and notes, accompanies the audiobook. E.S.B. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2022]
