Now, Ingrid has published, along with bestselling author Gene Stone, ANIMALKIND, an exploration of the richness of animal lives, their talents, emotions, and intelligence, and the many exciting ways all of us can act to prevent harm to animals. This latest book highlights some of the wonders of animal life and offers tools for living kindly toward our neighbors on our shared planet.

DID YOU KNOW THESE FUN ANIMAL FACTS?
● Birds have been found to be far more devoted to their romantic partners than humans. While the divorce rate in the U.S. is around 40 to 45 percent, swans, for instance, have a 95 percent rate of staying together for a lifetime.
● Oinks, grunts, and squeals aren’t just arbitrary noises made by pigs. More than twenty of these sounds have been identified with specific circumstances, from wooing mates to expressing distress and joy.
● Cows communicate with each other using subtle changes in facial expression; rhinos use a breath language; and frogs have learned to combat street noise by using drain pipes to amplify their calls.
● Chickens form complex pecking orders in which each bird not only understands her ranking, but can recall the faces and ranks of more than one hundred other birds.
