Unlikely Friendships (Review)


Being an avid animal lover, I love everything that has to do with our furry friends.  So I wasn’t surprised when I impulsively bought this book that I found at a small book store in Holland, MI.

Title: Unlikely Friendships: 47 Remarkable Stories from the Animal Kingdom

Author: Jennifer S. Holland

Synopsis: “A leopard lies down with a cow.  An elephant cuddles a sheep.  A housecat curls up with an iguana.  These are just a few of the 47 heartwarming stories of interspecies friendship, documented in amazing photographs, that challenge everything we think we know about animals and the lives they lead.”

ISBN: 978-0-7611-5913-1

My Review:

I fell in love with this book by just looking at the cover.  I mean, who couldn’t?!  

210 pages long, it’s an easy-read that captivates you from the beginning until the end.  Complete with beautiful pictures of the real life friendships and stories about the animals involved, you can’t help tearing up and getting goose bumps as you read. 

The author, whom is a senior writer at National Geographic, not only entertains but also educates the readers by adding facts about each animal featured in the book.   

Unlikely Friendships by Jennifer S. Holland is one of those books that you pass on to others and will definitely bring your mind and heart joy.  A highly recommended read, you will yearn for more cuteness once you are finished!
