Watching this wonderful DVD, The Emotional World of Farm Animals, we entered into a world that perhaps can best be described as uplifting and joyful, yet at the same time, fascinating and educational. Maybe you have already seen this excellent documentary. If you haven’t, we highly recommend it as an experience that children, as well as adults, will thoroughly enjoy.

Here is a quotation from the cover of this outstanding video:

“Jefferey Masson, author of When Elephants Weep and Dogs Never Lie About Love, leads viewers through the personal journey he underwent while writing his latest book, The Pig Who Sang to The Moon. This journey into the sentient, emotional lives of farm animals brings Masson to animal sanctuaries around the country where caregivers and the animals themselves tell their harrowing stories of rescue and escape. Masson delves into the rich ancestry of these curious and intelligent animals and interviews top experts in animal behavior who offer scientific perspectives on these amazing creatures.”
