  • Roots of Human Behavior, by veterinarian and ethologist, Viktor Reinhardt, employs engaging photographs to explore the parallels between animal and human expressions, emotions and psychology. Conceived as a resource for professionals working with animals to help them better “read” animals based on their expressions, the book is designed to capture the interest of general audiences, as well, with its touching images and trenchant commentary.
  • The Boy Who Loved All Living Things, a children’s book written and illustrated by Sheila Hamanaka, weaves actual events from the childhood of Dr. Albert Schweitzer into an imaginary journal as it might have been penned by the boy. The book aims to introduce Dr. Schweitzer to young readers and inspire them to follow the celebrated humanitarian’s example of treating animals with compassion and respect.
  • AWI Quarterly (magazine subscription), our full-color magazine that explores current animal welfare issues, including protection of endangered species, prevention of animal abuse, and more humane treatment of animals in research and agriculture. We would be happy to add your library to the subscription list.
