A Different Point of View
One of the things I love about writing is stepping into another point of view and considering the world in a completely novel (heh) way. Animal POV remains a near and dear genre subset of story because it asks not only to consider our human context, but where we fit in the world we share with other living and feeling creatures. Whether we anthropomorphize, celebrate, or disparage animals through these narratives, teaches us, as readers and human beings, how to empathize with experiences we cannot hope to understand. It is still worth trying.
Here are a few that stand out in my memory from childhood and as an adult! But these are just a few of maaaaaany others out there waiting to be discovered. Check out this awesome list from Goodreads and let me know what you find!
