So, You Love Animals: An Action-Packed, Fun-Filled Book To Help Kids Help Animals.
This humane education activity book is written for children with the goal of helping them learn to respect animals and the environment. Not only does the guide provide information, introduce new ideas, and encourage critical thinking, it also lets young people know that they can help save animals and the environment. Children are invited to join the Kid Animal Action Team (KAAT) and are then introduced to an exploration of animals that are pets. Chapter Two has several activities that explore issues associated with animals that entertain in zoos, live in aquariums, perform on racetracks and in circuses, and those victimized in hunting. Animals that are worn is the topic of the third chapter with activities focusing on fur, feathers, and leather. In subsequent chapters, issues that are discussed include those related to consumption of meat and animal products, animals in laboratories, animals such as snakes and mice which have been labeled as "pests," and wild animals. Each topic includes an overview, a list of pertinent facts, a description of some actions that kids can take; and specific activities related to each topic. The last chapter provides a number of ideas about how to learn from nature and how to share your ideas with family and friends. (DDR)
