156: What a Nose | English | Printed

by Gunter's Fables

This Fable talks all about your nose! It really is a wonderful and useful apparatus. Many animals rely on their nose to find food and detect hundreds of odours. They can pick up scents from beneath the ground. Survival on Earth depends on our senses. While the sense of smell has been considered less important, compared to that of vision, it certainly plays a critical role in our life. We also see a vision emerging – one that holds that the science of chemistry can reach the levels of efficiency that is found in the animal world.

This Fable was inspired by Diane Ackerman. Her book A Natural History of the Senses, written in 1990, is one of her three worldwide bestsellers. Diane’s book of poetry for children is entitled Animal Sense.
