Becoming a tiger : how baby animals learn to live in the wild by Susan McCarthy( Book )
4 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 904 libraries worldwide
Contrary to common belief, not everything is "hardwired"--Or instinctual--in the animal kingdom. Many skills a wild animal needs to thrive, to grow, to be what nature intended, must be developed through play, painstaking teaching, and often treacherous trial and error. The coming-of-age processes of the myriad creatures of plain, forest, ocean, and jungle are truly fascinating natural events. In this book, McCarthy offers readers an in-depth look into the ways baby animals learn not only about themselves, but about their world and ours--and how to survive in both. Based on extensive scientific research done in the lab, in controlled "natural" settings, as well as in the wild, her findings provide new insights into the lives and development of Earth's nonhuman inhabitants--not only tigers, but lions, bears, bats, rats, birds, dolphins, whales, apes, elephants, and dozens of other species.--From publisher description

A parable of King Amor, which teaches that there is no time for anger, fear, or hate. The story is divided into three parts. Part one is the story of the childhood of the heir to the throne, King Amor. Whisked away at birth to a deserted castle on a high mountain by his teacher the "Ancient One", King Amor learns of brotherhood with nature, the earth, and the sky. In Part two, King Amor grows into a tall, strong, handsome, and wise young man. He prepares for his coronation in the capitol city, and learns an important lesson that "There is no time for anger in the world". In the final part of the story, King Amor imparts his great wisdom to the wretchedly self-centered people of his kingdom, through the act of having each of them plant and nurture a rare blue flower
