The “irresistible” New York Times bestseller that “features heartwarming stories of interspecies love and adorable photographs” (The New York Times Book Review). Written by National Geographic magazine writer Jennifer Holland, Unlikely Friendships documents one heartwarming tale after another of animals who, with nothing else in common, bond in the most unexpected ways. A cat and a bird. A mare and a fawn. An elephant and a sheep. A snake and a hamster. The well-documented stories of Koko the gorilla and All Ball the kitten; and the hippo Owen and the tortoise Mzee. And almost inexplicable stories of predators befriending prey—an Indian leopard slips into a village every night to sleep with a calf. A lionness mothers a baby oryx. Holland narrates the details and arc of each story, and offers insights into why—how the young leopard, probably motherless, sought maternal comfort with the calf, and how a baby oryx inspired the same mothering instinct in the lionness. Or, in the story of Cashew, the lab mix that was losing his eyesight, and Libby, the stray cat who began to guide the dog’s way through the house and yard. With Libby, Cashew lived out his last few years with loving support and a lasting friendship. These are the most amazing friendships between species, collected from around the world and documented in a selection of full-color candid photographs. “The feel-good book of the summer—maybe the year—may very well be Unlikely Friendships.” —USA Today “With aww-inducing photographs, the book highlights the most improbable animal connections.” —National Geographic

When sports-loving Charlie is partnered with the weird new school in an after-school writing program, he complains that he no longer wants to be in the class. He blames everything except Jack, the new kid. He claims that his mother just wants to keep him busy every afternoon until she returns from her own teaching job and that she thinks he's a baby. His older sister Annie, who thinks she knows everything now that she's in that fancy prep school across town, tells him to give the new kid a chance. His father encourages him to "man up." Finally, his Uncle Rob adds to the mix and says, "I thought you wanted to be a sports writer like me." And Jack decides to give it a try. Frustrated that they argue about every subject suggested, Mrs. Mason, their patient and dedicated teacher, assigns a project and asks them to write about it every week. Using the key words a visiting author taught them--RESEARCH. READ. LISTEN--Charlie and Jack discover that they have more in common than they realized. And, eventually, these tools lead to a study and understanding of the class bully and unlikely friendships.

Failure to make children aware that racism and discrimination are wrong and non-negotiable is lazy. These are imperative aspects which need a voice for our societal growth as an enlightened and accountable culture.

Frog & Dog is a series about an unlikely friendship between blossoming best friends. When I say 'unlikely' I am referring to a friendship between a frog and a dog. Is this Crazy? Their loyal relationship and true friendship between completely different species are a breath of fresh air. With discrimination, racial angst and tension in today's world; presenting their relationship provides a child with an opportunity to nurture forgotten innocence, apply decision making, sprout moral integrity and to value the presence of mind to just BE KIND. Outside influences can disrupt the internal birth of solid well-founded relationships with just hints. These hints can lead to suggestions and suggestions can turn into beliefs and beliefs into a culture. If we enlighten early, we can attempt to illuminate and change the ongoing problem. Failure to make children aware that racism and discrimination are wrong and non-negotiable is lazy. These are imperative aspects which need a voice for our societal growth as an enlightened and accountable culture. "Early taught fosters an early start to a productive life and not one of naught." ❤ ❤

Can something as simple as friendship have a transformative impact in a divided world? Through a series of richly textured historical portraits and reflections on personal experience, this book shows that boundary-crossing friendships in Christian mission have shaped theologies, built organizations and partnerships, facilitated mission work, and changed attitudes and ways of thinking. This is true in settings as varied as eighteenth-century French women's work, twentieth-century urban Boston, colonial India, the Jim Crow South, and twentieth-century rural Congo. In all these settings and more, friendship has mattered. Boundary-crossing friendships are, however, not easy. Despite their power, such friendships are complicated by race, gender, ability, class, nationality, and other elements of identity, as this book also demonstrates. Friendships are not immune from the divisions in the world, nor a simple cure-all for them. Still, friendship stands as a powerful testimony to the gospel. Therefore, the book calls for more attention to friendship in the study of mission history and more living out of friendship as a practice of mission. In this way, this book pays honor to Dr. Dana L. Robert as a pre-eminent mission scholar and exemplary friend and mentor to others in the fields of missiology and world Christianity.

In her heartwarming New York Times bestsellers Unlikely Friendships and last year’s Unlikely Loves, Jennifer Holland revealed the surprising emotional bonds that exist between animals of different species. Her books spent dozens of weeks on bestseller lists and caught the attention of major media from CBS This Morning to USA Today. Why? Because she opened our eyes to the rich inner lives of animals, showing us that the power of love and friendship is not for humans only. In Unlikely Heroes, Ms. Holland uncovers and celebrates yet another side of animals that we often think belongs primarily to people—heroism, that indefinable quality of going above and beyond, often for altruistic reasons, often at great personal risk. These 37 inspiring true tales show animals whose quick acts have saved lives, like the pod of dolphins who protected swimmers in New Zealand from a great white shark by forming a screen around them. There are stories of animals who simply and unselfishly give, like Rojo the llama, who shines his very special light of lovingkindness on the elderly patients in an Oregon rehab center. And there are compelling stories of heroic resilience: like Naki’o, the abandoned puppy who lost all four paws to frostbite but found the grit not only to overcome that terrible hardship but to reclaim the joy of life—that’s him, smiling on the cover of the book.
