There is nothing like inspiring a young mind with a good book that is rich in scientific facts delivered with pizazz and rich illustrations or startling photographs. In order to tame your wild one—or at least tap into his belief system—lessons in animal humanity and conservation are not to be missed. Many experts suggest that self-esteem, self-confidence, non-verbal communication, compassion, and empathy are all strengthened when a child learns to take care of an animal.

The following books have been selected because they showcase unique stories, poems, or fascinating facts, that have been combined with expressive illustrations or photographs. Let your wild one loose, I assure you there is a book here that will captivate him.
