It’s time for another Facebook Video.

This time, Sy Montgomery, naturalist and author of the National Book Award finalist “Soul of an Octopus,” reads from her recently released book “How to Be a Good Creature.” 

Montgomery, who has worked closely with the Aquarium, reads from a chapter about Octavia, a giant Pacific octopus that had been at the Aquarium. Montgomery counts animals among her best teachers, mentors, and friends. These creatures helped her find her passion, taught her the meaning of family, and gave her the gifts of forgiveness and gratitude. Her book is a memoir of the 13 animals who lent this book its title and showed her, by their example, how to be a good creature.
