ABSTRACT
The article focuses on learning from pets. An animal can be a child's best friend, as well as a great teacher. Most children are fascinated by animals and feel a natural connection to them, whether they're family pets or live in a zoo, a park, a classroom, or on a farm. Children can relate to an animal's innocence, vulnerability, and in the case of pets, dependence on others for survival. Perhaps most important, children who own pets or have direct experiences with animals feel more empathy for other people from an early age, in part because they learn to understand the feelings and needs of animals that are dependent on their owners.
