商品の説明

内容紹介

It is exactly like Isaiah 11:6: "The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid . . . " Written by National Geographic magazine writer Jennifer Holland, Unlikely Friendships documents one heartwarming tale after another of animals who, with nothing else in common, bond in the most unexpected ways. A cat and a bird. A mare and a fawn. An elephant and a sheep. A snake and a hamster. The well-documented stories of Koko the gorilla and All Ball the kitten; and the hippo Owen and the tortoise Mzee. And almost inexplicable stories of predators befriending prey--an Indian leopard slips into a village every night to sleep with a calf. A lionness mothers a baby oryx. Ms. Holland narrates the details and arc of each story, and also offers insights into why--how the young leopard, probably motherless, sought maternal comfort with the calf, and how a baby oryx inspired the same mothering instinct in the lionness. Or, in the story of Kizzy, a nervous retired Greyhound, and Murphy, a red tabby, how cats and dogs actually understand each other's body language. With Murphy's friendship and support, Kizzy recovered from life as a racing dog and became a confident, loyal family pet.

These are the most amazing friendships between species, collected from around the world and documented in a selection of full-color candid photographs.

CNNのスタジオ番組で紹介されて盛り上がっているのみて即買いしました。
アメリカ人もびっくりしてました。そこは同じ感覚なんですね(笑)

表紙の写真だけでなくさまざまな組み合わせの動物がともだちになっている様子が
写真からいきいきと伝わってきます。

こんな世界があるのかと驚き、かつ楽しめます。

英語が読めなくても十分癒されます。
この本を教材が代わりに英語学習にチャレンジするのも悪くないと思います。

5つ星のうち 5.0 Kleenex and Compassion 2015/12/23
投稿者 Native Teacher - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
If the generosity of humans came close to the warmth and compassion, love and acceptance that these stories of diverse friendships share how many of the fears and wars and terrors of our hostile world would be mended? This book must be read with a good friend--one sitting beside you who can read, and one sitting on your lap who can feel your emotions embrace your wonderful friend with four legs or wings or whatever method of travel he/she uses. You will need Kleenex to laugh out loud and long, and more to wipe away the tears of awareness and understanding of such unconditional love that changes everything if we let it. WOW! A powerful read and a gift that will be cherished by all who have loved an animal and who is open to how love and compassion know no boundaries.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Total delight! 2011/6/22
投稿者 S. Robertson - (Amazon.com)

This book is a little treasure! It's sweet and charming while being interesting and informative. In addition to my own copy, I'm buying more copies for friends and family members, of all ages. The reaction from people who viewed it so far is extremely enthusiastic, so I'll no doubt end up ordering even more. I am even already hoping there will be a sequel, or at least something along these lines.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Awww! 2014/5/8
投稿者 Beez - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
Sweet, sometimes touching, sometimes amazing, sometimes somewhat heartbreaking vignettes showing sometimes unlikely animal friendships.

The stories range from domestic dog and cat, cat and lizard, dog and goat tales to stories about a monkey in Indonesia who adopted a kitten he found hanging around, a sleek black bear and his similarly-attired cat pal and elephants, hippos and other befriending unlikely, often wee pals who might otherwise be lunch.

Each story is a couple of pages or so, accompanied by at least one picture of the animals in question.

Some stories seem like they could stand lengthening, or more info about the outcome, as they range from 'these animals were observed hanging out together' to 'these unlikely pals have lived together in a house for years.' Probably culled from other sources, but nice as a collection nonetheless. Not a deep read or anything, but if you like this sort of thing, it's a nice book to pick up and read a few stories at a time - also really nice to read to or with kids. Can spark nice conversations about differences and commonality, meaning of friendships, how animals have feelings too, etc.

I enjoyed the vignettes of the various animal friendships. For those that don't believe animals have emotions, this book is for you. In addition to the stories, I enjoyed the pictures and the descriptions of the various species.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Should be read by every adult. Should be read to every child. 2013/5/17

Regardless of affiliation, Americans have consistently demonstrated their concern about the humane treatment of animals. Independent polls by Gallup, the Associated Press and others have shown rising support for animal protection for more than a decade. Humane education has become a legitimate issue in schools across the country.

Often, when a person is lacking in compassion, cruelty is commited out of ignorance - from a lack of education and understanding that animals have feelings. They can suffer and feel loneliness and depression just like you.

It is important to plant the seeds of kindness in children early, and to nurture their development as the child grows. One of the most power tools for preventing cruelty to animals by people lacking in natural compassion, is education. Children not only need to learn what they shouldn't do, but also what they can and should do. When children see that their pets are happy and loving, it will make the child feel good, too. This in turn will help the children care for their pets' feelings.

"Again, with all children--even older teens--keep in mind the importance of modeling appropriate behaviors. Our children do emulate us, even if they wouldn't admit it. If we treat animals cruelly or as unfeeling machines (as in factory-farming or puppy/kitten "mills"), our children will probably think that this is acceptable, or at least, normal. The more a child identifies with an adult, the greater an impact that person will have on the child--in both good and bad ways."

I will let the voices of the better of us speak for me:

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress (and the decency and morality of its leaders) can be judged by the way its animals are treated." --Mahatma Gandhi

"We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals... In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow travelers in the splendor and travail of the earth." --Henry Beston (if anything, they are our betters; they live in the earth without causing all the damage to it that we do; they are not spiteful or mean out of hate; they don't cause fear and pain and death for pleasure or 'sport' as some human animals do.)

(They are of service to us in countless ways: as our ears, as our eyes, to assist the disabled, they protect us, they provide transport (the impetus for our level of civilization - after millions of years of subsistence - was the horse), they provide companionship, they detect cancer, they lower our blood pressure and our stress levels, they make repeat heart attacks less likely, ad infinitum. If all the bees disappeared from the earth, so would we.)

"Not to hurt our humble brethren is our first duty to them, but to stop there is not enough. We have a higher mission - to be of service to them wherever they require it." -- St. Francis of Assisi

"The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is to be indifferent to them. That's the essence of inhumanity." -- George Bernard Shaw

"The least that I can do is speak out for those who cannot speak for themselves." --Jane Goodall

"If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will find that these are men who will deal likewise with their fellow man." --St. Francis of Assisi

"As you do unto the least of mine, so you do also unto me" --The Christ

Since people don't always understand when they are being cruel, adults need education, too. If you are not a teacher, please urge your local schools to integrate humane education into their curricula. If you are a teacher, bring humane education into your classroom. To help you, your local shelter may have outreach programs, education materials, camps, etc. You can also find plenty of humane ideas and activities at the Humane Education section, and on our children's websites, [...] and [...]
