Mini book review: ‘Animal Wise: How We Know Animals Think and Feel,’ by Virginia Morell

by Patty Templeton

Animals have long since been believed to not experience emotion, but after reporting for six years in 11 different countries as a science journalist, Virginia Morell came to the personal decision that animals feel. In “Animal Wise: How We Know Animals Think and Feel,” Morell posits that animals think, laugh, play, grieve, and demonstrate empathy.

This isn’t a book bogged down in science speak. It’s a free-flowing examination of how animals may be closer to human behavior than previously thought. For example, ants teach, rats love to be tickled, chimpanzees show sadness, crows create tools, and birds practice songs in their sleep.

If you like books like “The Soul of an Octopus” or are interested in the human-animal bond, pick up a copy of Virginia Morell’s New York Times bestselling “Animal Wise.”
