5 Wildlife Books for Children
2016-05-26

Children are a blessing and their eyes are filled with awe and wonder. As they grow in an age of deforestation and urbanization, It is important for us to impart certain values to protect and preserve our precious wildlife. Reading up about animals in their natural habitat can inspire kids to create a better world for everyone under the Sun. Here’s a list of top five books that will help your children become more aware of the jungle.

 

Birds of Prey of the Indian Subcontinent

With a keen eye and wings to fly, birds are among the most adored animals to have ever lived. Written by Rishad Naoroji, Birds of Prey is an excellent book that acts as a guide for young ones to identify raptors of the Indian subcontinent. It features lavishly illustrated colour pages with over 600 photos for your kids to enjoy.

 

Wildlife: Minicube

This charming addition to the MiniCube series showcases exotic species and familiar favourites, capturing fleeting moments in the lives of a vast range of wild animals from around the world. Children can read about untamed creatures caring for their young, hunting for food, basking in the sun, grooming, and other everyday activities which, depicted alongside pictures, become very special indeed.

 

The Jim Corbett Omnibus

Written by a seasoned hunter, Jim Corbett does a wonderful job of describing the dangers that lurk in the jungles. Between the three stories covered in the book, children can gauge incredible insights about the wilderness that will send chills down their spines and keep kids cautions when out on safaris.

 

The Jungle Book

Made popular by an animated show and a full-length film, The Jungle Book is a favourite for kids around the world. Written by Rudyard Kipling, the story follows a young boy left under the care of a pack of wolves in the jungles. The book explores the alternative to man vs. wild and weaves a tale that encourages co-existence with nature and other animals out in the wild.

 

Born Free

Written by Joy Adamson, Born Free tells the beautiful story of a lion named Elsa that grows up with a human family. As the story progresses, it transits from safe captivity to the dangerous wild and ultimately into freedom. The joy of the wild, which is fast diminishing in this modern world, is described in its raw essence in this book and can be seen as an inspiration for a number of generations from the time of its publication in 1960.

 

Well, there you have it. Surprise your kids by grabbing any of these books and giving it to your kids. Don’t forget to tell them about the jungle safari they’ll be going on once they finish to see them smile.
