Solitary Animals is a lyrical nonfiction audiobook that honors animals who live in solitude, in contrast to others who live in groups. With nature at his back, Joshua David Stein invites listeners to draw strength and comfort from the behaviors of animals, making it a perfect listen for children who are introverted as well as all children, who will be encouraged to respect the “natural” choices of their peers.
