Comments Talking Tails: The Incredible Connection Between People and Their Pets

  • Jennifer

    This is a very cute nonfiction book about the connection between animals and people. It is broken down into four basic sections. The first section is called Pets and people: Hearts and Smarts. This section is really short and explains the brain chemistry involved in loving a pet. It’s done in a very good way so that even kids can understand what is going on in our brains and why we fall in love with them. The second section is called Different Pets for Different Folks. This section goes throug [...]

    This juvenile nonfiction selection is a look at a variety of pets and their relationships with human beings throughout history. While most of the material is good, I did have a few concerns about certain parts of the text. -The authors present keeping cats indoors vs. outdoors as both acceptable choices, although they ask those who "live near traffic" to "consider" an indoor cat. Those who select outdoors are advised to put a belled collar on Tabby (an all but pointless endeavor) and keep the an [...]

    This book is not only adorable but it is full of facts about dogs, cats and other pet-type animals. There is also a fascinating time line about animals that runs through the whole book at the bottom of each page. Obviously, I am a dog person, but the stories in the book gave the pros and cons about each animal and would help a child decide which would be the best pet for their family. There is also a great poster that folds out from the dust jacket. This would make an excellent gift to any child [...]

    I love children's books. And I love pets. Yet this book fell flat for me. The stories had the potential to be interesting, but they jumped from thought to thought so rapidly that I almost had trouble following it. I'd worry that children wouldn't make the jumps as readily. [return][return]Also, the artwork is a bit washed out. It is still cute, though.[return][return]I don't pretend to know what children will like, especially seeing as how all children are different, but there wasn't anything pa [...]

    I loved this book. What a wonderful book for children to learn about animals and how to care for them. Although all the basics are covered, the author provides another level of learning with her timeline which cotninues on each page, telling us the known origins of the species being discussed. The illustrations are delightful and I plan on sharing this book with my grandchildren. I also plan to recommend the book to my Curriculum Materials Library.


  • JennLynn

    A great introduction to companion animals. A timeline of interesting animal-related events throughout history plus plenty of fun facts and trivia. A particular focus on cats and dogs. Packs a lot of information in a slim volume - perfect for keeping middle schoolers' interest.


  • Karen

    Adequate introduction to pet ownership for teens and older children. Topics include cats, dogs, and more exotic animals. Illustrations are attractive, colourful, and entertaining. I would use the book to give a high level overview of pet ownership, but not for someone who knows they want a dog and are looking for tips specifically related to dogs.


  • Nicole Stevens

    What a cute book!! 'Talking Tails' gently explores the relationship between people and their pets in a way that makes it understandable for children and still interesting for adults. A quick read for adults, the grown up reader may be drawn to the time line of animals-as-pets spanning the bottom of each page. I can see an animal loving child reading this book over and over, or a family using it when thinking about getting a pet. Cats and dogs get most of the pages, but horses, fish, rodents, and [...]
