Engaging Stories and Lessons Developed by American Humane Available for Parents

Here’s a way to keep your kids engaged, happy, and learning by giving them the present of an exciting free series of animal stories and lessons designed to boost their reading skills, while encouraging them to care for and help conserve the remarkable, endangered, and disappearing creatures of the Earth. The award-winning Humane Heroes series of free e-books for elementary, middle-school, and high-school students was created by American Humane, the country’s first national humane organizationand the publishers of the popular Chicken Soup for the Soul series of books. Through inspirational stories of animal rescue, rehabilitation, and humane conservation being performed at the world’s leading zoological institutions, and professionally developed lesson plans developed by teacher-trusted Resources for Learning and tied to English Language Arts (ELA) and social and emotional learning (SEL) skills, Humane Heroes makes learning fun and teaches children compassion at the same time. Parents who homeschool or who are looking for a way to spend quality time together will also enjoy reading and going through the easy-to-follow downloadable lesson plans with their children. Among the animals they will meet are a baby cheetah who was orphaned and found a special friend, a penguin who was able to walk again with the help of a 3-D printer, and an abandoned baby dolphin who was saved. “American Humane has been teaching children about the value of treating animals well for more than a century,” said American Humane President and CEO Dr. Robin Ganzert, who conceived the project. “We hope that during this time when children are out of school and looking for things to do, our Humane Heroes books and curricula can bring families together with an enjoyable activity, keep kids’ learning on track, and help cultivate a new generation of animal advocates for the beautiful creatures with whom we share the world.” To download free copies of the Humane Heroes e-books, visit any of the major online book sites such as Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble.
