Becoming a Good Creature PICTURE BOOK by Sy Montgomery

Becoming a Good Creature by Sy Montgomery

This picture book is based on the New York Times best-selling adult memoir, How to be a Good Creature: A Memoir in Thirteen Animals. Sy shares life experiences that highlight how much animals can teach us if we are willing students... learning to watch and understand.  Gorillas, dogs, octopuses, tigers and more have all shown Sy that there are no limits to the empathy and joy we can find in one another if only we take the time to connect. Through observation and reflection, she learns how to:

Discover your passions

Respect others

Take risks

Be patient

Decide for yourself


Find common ground

Trust tomorrow

This guide book would make a wonderful gift for story time because talking with little people about being better creatures in the world creates adults who strive to be better creatures in the world. Go ahead, pass it on!
