Kids & Animals

kids & animalsFrom Professor Marc Bekoff:

‘It is with great pleasure that I write to you with a link to a new online book, Kids & Animals: Drawings From the Hands and Hearts of Children & Youth.

This inspirational book is the result of a happy collaboration between me and the Children, Youth and Environments Center at the University of Colorado to feature the drawings, writing, and activities of children and youth engaged in Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots programs in countries around the world. It is our goal that this book will inspire other young people to draw and write about their feelings for animals and to put their own ideas into action to care for animals, protect their habitats, and promote compassion, empathy, coexistence, and peace. It is perfect for classes, discussions, and activities focusing on humane education and conservation education so that we can all expand our compassion footprint.’
