Hope For Animals And Their World
My family and friends will testify that I’m animal crazy.
I adore God’s creatures
(except snakes – I can’t stand them – shudder)
and I have been a fan of Jane Goodall, since I was a small child.
She is truly one of my heros.
It was a true pleasure to listen to each and every word
of this wonderful audio book.
As Goodall speaks of the animals that were once near extinction,
warmth, hope, and gratitude can be felt in her voice.
I am so thankful to Anna, and the folks at Hatchette
for making it possible for me to listen to,enjoy and feel…
Hope For Animals And Their World!
