Animalkind
978-3-7913-7302-7
Featuring beautifully distinctive prints of the natural world and sensitive text, this book helps children understand the inextricable connections between human and animal life. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that humans are not the only inhabitants of Earth. This visually striking book reminds us that not only do we share an ecosystem with other living things, but that we can also learn much from the behavior and instincts of our animal neighbors. In Pablo Salvaje’s handcrafted, softly colored prints readers encounter a wide range of creatures—from jellyfish and peacocks to polar bears and snakes. With chapters on love, survival, change, habitat, water, and other topics, this book takes readers on a journey across the planet to show how animals, like humans, form bonds, engage in rivalries, adapt their behavior to cope with challenges, and do anything to protect their offspring. A beautiful lesson in compassion, this book carries a universal message that readers young and old will appreciate and return to again and again.
