Kids Can Save the Animals!
101 Easy Things to Do
by Ingrid E. Newkirk
Warner Books, New York, 1991
This book is written in a lighthearted, breezy style and never talks down to the reader. It's full of fascinating facts, fun and easy projects, and more than 100 creative ways to help animals.
When students are looking for subjects for speeches or persuasive essays, use this book to peak their interest. Place the book on display with other books, magazines, and posters on animal-related topics to encourage students to learn about animal issues. This would be an especially appropriate display during "Be Kind to Animals" Week (the first week of May). Kids Can Save the Animals is also a wonderful resource for service learning teachers and clubs. Social studies teachers and humane educators may want to use the book to discuss the proper care and treatment of animals.
