Koko's Kitten I first read this book when I was about eight years old Its tenderness touched me, changing my perception of the power of a book forever.

could speak with her keepers in this way So, when they asked her what she wanted, she told them, Cat They got her a tiny gray, tailless kitten The story of KOKO s KITTEN by Francine Patterson tells of

anger when her keepers gave her a pretend cat covered in velvet Then we read about her gentleness and motherliness when she was given her real kitten Koko chose the kitten, and Koko named him All Ball Throughout this children s book are photographs, not just illustrations, by Ronald H Cohn This is what made me want to read the book I loved it.Koko is still alive, 40 years old, at the San Francisco Zoo I wish I knew her story when I lived in southern California in the 1980s through 2005 I would have made the 3 hour drive to San Francisco just to see her Maybe I ll still get there before she dies In the meantime, I can read the book for adults, THE EDUCATION OF KOKO Koko the gorilla uses sign language to talk to her handlers When she asks for a pet, her handlers search high and low for the

existed, but I had no memory of having read it , and when I decided to do a booktalk on real life animals, I thought it might be a nice one to include The story itself is sweet, though I probably would have given it three or four stars rather than five, because in places, it wasn t clear to me how Patterson had conveyed such complex questions and comments to Koko.However, this review unsettled

Patterson had conveyed such complex questions and comments to Koko.However, this review unsettled me, and this article didn t help that In retrospect, I wish I could say I was surprised, but I ve heard of other examples of misuse of primates by researchers in the past, like poor Nim Chimpsky And now I have no idea how to rate this book The idea of this book is lovely, and if the depiction of Koko s gentleness and love towards her kittens is accurate, it s still a beautiful look at the relationship between two creatures However, it s also the tangible end result of an organization that has allegedly mistreated its simian charges and presents a rosier impression of their communicative capabilities than is strictly accurate I don t exactly want to judge the book s merits on outside issues, but I also don t want to present children with what is, at best, wishful thinking and, at worst, a carefully constructed marketing ploy to cover up animal mistreatment First sentence Koko s

Kitten is a must read for every human who eats, votes, or shops This book inspired my respect for the rights, dignity, and intelligence of animals, and led to heated arguments with my teacher in 6th grade and my friends in college Koko s ability to express her unique thoughts and feelings and her friend Michael s ability to remember and describe the death of his mother contradict widespread assumptions about the differences between animals and humans. Part of me loves this sweet story, accompanied by photographs, of a signing gorilla interacting with its pet kittens But I am also left a little unsettled by how unnatural this is A few minutes of internet research on Koko s trainer leaves medisturbed I would like to doresearch to sort out my feelings on Koko s life and this book. This is a true story about a gorilla that a zoo had worked with with sign language and knowing her personality They gave her a kitten to care for and she did take care of her feeling all the emotions a human does with deep friendships.
