Publisher's Summary

The beauty of animal companionship.

For hundreds of years, humans and animals have had special bonds with each other. We've lived side-by-side through thick and thin - these relationships are not just about raising pets and farm animals. Our animal companions offer inspiration, friendship, health, and real-life opportunities for recovery that we can't achieve alone.

True stories of animal therapy: In Animal Kind, Emma Lock of YouTube fame shares stories of the incredible ways that animals keep us healthy and happy, physically and mentally. You'll be inspired by the tales of remarkable recovery, from vision-impaired individuals who have gained independence with the help of seeing-eye dogs, to the woman who found new life as an equestrian champion after an arm amputation.

Friendship in surprising places: The stories in Animal Kind feature an array of relationships that may surprise you. Even wild animals like snakes and racoons have been known to offer life-changing companionship. With each story, you'll learn fun facts about the featured species and hear from the people who love them. You'll also hear the never-before-told story of how animals changed Emma's life for good.

Good Listen but wanted more

I felt like this could have been more, I loved the stories but instead of talking about the stories impact afterward Em just gave information on the animal featured instead of tying to story into a lesson as the subtitle says. The VA had an almost robotic sound to her voice sometimes which made it a bit strange to listen to but it was overall a good book. I probably wouldn't recommend to someone looking for a deep read but it is something nice and light for those who aren't looking for anything you need to be truly invested in

Animal Kind

This is one of the best true accounts of a persons life I’ve ever read, the story is very warm and shows a lot of emotion and love for her pets and told of other parts of her life as well. I recommend this book to anyone who loves animals.

Lovely book

I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of short stories. They are emotionally moving, entertaining, and thought provoking.

The narrator has a weird cadence to her voice and often reads in such a way that a whole paragraph sounds like a single run-on sentence. I found myself wanting to tell her to "Breathe!" At the same time, she does voices, accents, and emotions very well.

For sure, though, if you don't have the time or patience for a printed copy of this book, the beautiful stories within are well worth the small discomfort sometimes caused by the narrator.

Animal lovers will love this.

I am ready for more of these stories. The bonds between animals and people is not just just for dogs & cats. This shows a variety of bonds & how they grew.

Thank you Emma for your inspiring work

This book is such a relatable and inspiring book.
The chapter ‘Bear’ had me in floods of tears as it was something that I could really relate to.
I highly recommend giving this a read!
