Teaching children to be kind to animals

The Bible calls us to raise our children in the love of God and following the teachings of Jesus. One of the main teachings of Jesus was compassion toward our neighbors. The animals who share this planet with us are our neighbors and we are called to respect and treat them kindly. Ambuja Rosen is an award-winning journalist in Ashland, Oregon, who specializes in writing about animals, and has visited classrooms to teach students to be kind to animals. She wrote a great piece titled “Teaching Children to Love All God's Creatures” in which she reminds us of the importance of teaching children to be kind to animals. Ms. Rosen brings to attention that Oct. 4th is St. Francis Feast Day and refers to him as a great example to follow in order to teach kids about how to treat God’s creatures. She provides excellent ideas for classroom activities and recommends some books appropriate for this subject.
