Book description from Scholastic.com “This is the true story of Koko the gorilla and her kitten, All Ball — how they met, how Koko loved and cared for All Ball, and how Koko grieved when All Ball died. The story is told by Dr. Francine Patterson, the first person to communicate with a gorilla using American Sign Language. Over thirteen years, Koko learned about five hundred words from Dr. Patterson, which she used to communicate her feelings and desires. One of the desires she was able to express through ASL was for a kitten. At first, Dr. Patterson was not sure how Koko would treat a little kitten, but there was nothing to worry about. Koko treated the kitten as though it was her own baby. The affection and caring in the relationships between Dr. Patterson and Koko and between Koko and her kitten are captured in Ronald Cohn's beautiful photographs. This selection is a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year, as well as a Reading Rainbow Selection and a New York Academy of Science Honor Book. It may be used for studies in Natural Science, Animal Studies, Communications, or Death and Dying. The book follows Koko through her grieving and recovery process as she mourns All Ball and finally meets her new red tabby kitten.” ~RIP, sweet Koko. The world is a better place for you and your species being a part of it. #scholastic#kokothegorilla#loveislove#greatapes#heartwarming

There are times we feel alone even if your in a room full of people. You still feel alone. Life isn’t what you were hoping for but you still have to be appreciative. If you feel down or not feeling good.. Go for a walk alone.. it’s best to take yourself to see the sun rise or sunset. Take a look at the sky, breathe in the beautiful air, take a moment and mediate. Everything we go through is for a reason. Some things are lessons and some are blessings. Although we don’t know if it’s a blessing or a lesson at the moment... just know that it was already planned. #lookatpositives#growyourheart#growyourspirit#momsunite
