Another fascinating work of non-fiction by the wonderful Sy Montgomery! I learned so much reading this book, about Autism and about the humane (and inhumane) treatment of animals. The only thing missing for me was some advice/call-to-action for all of us as consumers. Temple's story is inspiring and I think kids/teens will leave it feeling motivated to create change, but I they'll also (like me) feel uncertain as to how/where they can expend that energy. At the end Temple gives general life/work advice to "Kids on the Spectrum," but I would have liked her/Sy to also tell all readers how we can support Temple's efforts to improve the treatment of farm animals, through our purchasing, voting, letter-writing, etc.
