An alphabet book that aims to inform and inspire children to pay attention to, and care for, all the animals we share our planet with. From A to Z, each letter has beautiful animal illustrations and an engaging educational poem to further connect the reader with each animal.

From the smallest dragonfly to the largest walrus, all animals deserve to live out their lives naturally. They need help from us, and this book offers gentle, do-able ways to inspire a child to feel empowered, through whimsical Seussian-like verses. The human impact on our beautiful planet has been a destructive one that affects all life. This informative, call to action, lead with your heart and mind book, is filled with whimsical drawings and poems to encourage your budding animal activist. Armed with information and compassion, children can “learn to be a voice for those without. Come on, let’s help each other, don’t whisper…shout!” As the Zebu says: “We’re plant eaters, flower eaters, lovers of life. If the world followed suit, there would be much less strife.”
