12/25/12 ** I was so intrigued with this book while buying Christmas books that it "jumped" into my pile of gifts just so I'd have a chance to read it. Perhaps I should have actually kept it.
Binky, in planning the training for the new space cadet, develops a new understanding of the unique traits and talents of each creature, whether they look like oneself or not.
There are also a few digs about the inadequacy of not books or robots, and the importance of LIVE teachers, . As a member of the under siege teaching profession, I enjoyed those pages. :)
