I just bought this book for my step-son, but I can't deny my selfish motivation to re-read it myself. Even as an adult I am awestruck by Koko's story, that is so relatable.

I remember this story being so validating to me as a child who whole-heartedly believed in the equality of all living things (at least the mammals, or cute ones) and the ability of other animals to experience emotions. As an adult the book is not only scientifically fascinating and wonderous, but also a reminder of how a child can teach an adult about a world they often take for granted.
