Rescuing Ladybugs: Inspirational Encounters with Animals That Changed the World
Ladybugs migrate and one can sometimes find them at the sea shore. Reporter and naturalist Jennifer Skiff reminds us of these inspirational encounters and as editor collects many stories about encounters with the wild insects in Rescuing Ladybugs: Inspirational Encounters with Animals That Changed the World.
These animals do not have a voice themselves, but Skiff and the assembled have talked with and for them. Some of these writers are famous, others influential, and all inspired by their encounters with the natural kingdom. Skiff introduces them, gives them time to tell their stories, and interviews them. There is a great assemblage of creatures to read about from all over the world. Many of the contributors are like Jane Goodall and have become experts and spokespersons because of their camaraderie with a certain creature. Some readers, though, who are dealing with economic or health issues might not be in the mood for the enthusiasm and optimism, but Skiff reminds us that we share the planet with other fantastical and fascinating creatures, some of which can be great friends, and we can learn to care–both from them and for them.
