Creature Comforts (Or, Comforting Books Featuring Animals)

Recommendations from Claire


"The phrase “creature comforts” describes material comforts that contribute to ease and wellbeing. In this time, I find myself, more than ever, turning to creature comforts in the form of books. Additionally, I have taken great comfort from the actual creatures in my life (such as Percy, pictured here). I am missing all of the Wild Rumpus creatures, and the multitude of books on our shelves that feature animals. Here are some of my favorite books containing creatures and particularly comforting balms for the soul."
