WHEN VIEWING ON A MOBILE DEVICE -- DOUBLE TAP TO ZOOM Praise for Connecting Animals and Children in Early Childhood “A beautifully written, beautifully illustrated, and succinct guide to children’s connection with animals—its origins, its manifestations, its benefits, and how to promote it. Highly recommended.” —Howard Frumkin, MD, DrPH, Dean and Professor of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences, University of Washington School of Public Health “Selly’s book is an outstanding, informative, and inspiring examination of our complex and potentially beneficial relationship with nonhuman animals. Well-written and illustrated, the book provides a thorough under­ standing of the various ways humanity is enriched and enhanced by its connection with both wild and domesticated animals. The book is also realistic and practical, offering various pathways for particularly children to engage and learn from other life.” —Stephen R. Kellert, Professor Emeritus, Yale University, and author of Birthright: People and Nature in the Modern World “What a wonderful resource for parents, grandparents, early childhood professionals, child care providers, and anyone caring for children. This delightful, enjoyable, and useful book is full of solid information about the magical relationship between children and animals.” —David Walsh, PhD, psychologist and author “I enjoyed Connecting Animals and Children in Early Childhood. It is a well written resource that is easy to read, includes great pictures to share with children, and contains good information on how pets at home and in early education classrooms can help children learn about feelings. I would rec- ommend Connecting Animals and Children in Early Childhood to anyone who brings a pet into a young child’s life.” —Chad Dunkley, Chief Operating Officer, New Horizon Academy COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL
