The benefits of having pets and being around animals are well researched and documented. Pets in classrooms and early childhood settings provide opportunities for children to learn about the needs of animals. Providing care and companionship for animals helps children develop compassion, empathy and improves their human relationships. They develop an increased sense of responsibility, reliability, and self-confidence.


Caring for Animals from Enlighten Press’ 3 Bees Collection, is designed to suit the needs of the Early Childhood Sector. The book has information boxes and clear, colourful, and interesting photographs of a wide range of common and not-so-common pets as well as native animals. This is useful in differentiating between domestic and wild animals, while reinforcing that all animals need to be cared for.


Use Caring for Animals Big Book to prompt discussion about pets at home and in the Learning Environment. It is never too early for children to start learning to care for animals.
