Overview


Kids learn about animal welfare around the world, including cruelty prevention, emergency rescue, wildlife rehabilitation, animal advocacy, habitat preservation, and shelter volunteering. They explore ways to address the needs of animals—both domestic and wild, read what others (including young people) have done and are doing to help, find out what their community needs, and develop a service project. Includes facts, quotations, real-life examples, write-on pages, resources, a note to adults—and a lot of inspiration to get out there and make a difference in the world. This hands-on student workbook was created in collaboration with the ASPCA and can be used as a stand-alone or in conjunction with The Complete Guide to Service Learning. Part of an ongoing series that includes A Kids’ Guide to Hunger & Homelessness and A Kids’ Guide to Helping Others Read & Succeed.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Wonderful guide to compassion and responsible treatment of creatures that can't speak for themselves. Highly recommended." —Midwest Book Review, The Pets/Wildlife Shelf

“An outstanding service-learning book . . . extremely timely as more and more kids and youth are spending less time with other animals and out in nature and more time in front of computer screens. This book ‘is designed to open minds, create possibilities, and encourage the lasting benefits that occur when making a contribution of one’s personal talents and skills,’ and it does this and more.”—Children, Youth and Environments Journal

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
This workbook gives young people inspiration and guidance for community action that will make a difference in the lives of wild and domestic animals. Stories recount the accomplishments of other kids and detail how animals help us. The book is divided into sections about preparation by getting information, action, reflection, and demonstration. Preparation for teaching pet care may lead to direct service with another person, indirect action that meets a need, advocacy, or further research to benefit the community. Each section has places to fill in information. Things learned are recorded under "Reflection." "Demonstration" means promotion of what you have learned through art work, photos, or digital media. Sources of information such as web sites, books, and organizations such as the ASPCA are included. A note informs teachers, youth leaders, and parents about how to the use of this book with a group. This is part of the "Character Education & Service Learning" series. This book is a great guide for young people who want help animals. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman
