Kids and Animals, Marc Bekoff, Foreword by Jane Goodall (URL)

Hello everyone!

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. discover/centers/CYE/Publications/Pages/Books.aspx ArchitecturePlanning/discover/ centers/CYE/Documents/kids_and_animals_printable_lowresolution.pdf

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.

Enjoy this book and feel free to share this link with others and post to your own website. Please also feel free to cross-post. We hope that Kids & Animals will inspire as many young people as possible as well as the adults who work with them to help turn dreams for a better world into reality. - Marc Bekoff, University of Colorado, Boulder
