Humane Education Bookshelf: Kids and Animals

Since my TEDx talk was released, I have been receiving lots of emails from people wanting to learn how to implement the ideas I shared. I’ve also been hearing from humane educators and groups doing fantastic work across the globe. For my next several blog posts, I wanted to share some of their great work.

Outstanding humane educator and renowned ethologist, Marc Bekoff, Ph.D., has done it again: produced a wonderful book and tool for humane educators. Written in collaboration with Roots and Shoots, Kids & Animals: Drawings From the Hands and Hearts of Children & Youth shares the beautiful and heartfelt words and drawings of children around the world who are involved in Roots and Shoots work to improve the lives of animals, the environment and communities across the globe. Best of all, the book is available free online. (pdf)

For a better world through humane education,

Zoe Weil, President, Institute for Humane Education
Author of Most Good, Least Harm, The Power and Promise of Humane Education, Claude and Medea, and Above All, Be Kind
