Why is it important for children to learn about animals?
Developing positive feelings about animals can contribute to a child's self-esteem and self-confidence. Positive relationships with animal or pets can aid in the development of trusting relationships with others.
Animals provide opportunities for children to gain their social skills, practice care-giving and nurturing, and even to carefully explore issues of power and vulnerability.
