HELPING TEACHERS INSPIRE COMPASSION FOR ANIMALS, PEOPLE & THE ENVIRONMENT

Animals in Literature

AnimalTales

AnimalTales is a FREE book lending program created for Alberta Elementary teachers who want to foster empathy, respect and a sense of responsibility for animals, people and the environment.

Books with Animals

Popular books with animals reviewed through an animal welfare lens to provide opportunities for critical thinking and awareness.

Choosing Animal-Themed Books

Stories that feature animals are ubiquitous in children’s literature. Not all books represent animals, or our relationship to them, in a realistic way, however many can still provide great teaching moments and build empathy if they are reflected on critically.
