Helping children's love of animals into a love of learning
As we all know, there is an urgent need to educate our young people about wildlife and their natural habitats.
The future of wildlife is contingent on raising the awareness of millions of children (and adults) in the United States and abroad. To date, more than 135 million copies of Zoobooks have found their way into the hands of children, parents, teachers, and the positive educational impact of this distribution has already been substantial. The books have proved their power to educate and motivate children, and they have proved their lasting value as educational resources for children how receive them.
Zoobooks have accomplished all of this because each Zoobook provides an exciting amalgam of beautiful images and authoritative information, in a format that is attractive to children. Even with today’s instant information access, Children love books. The most important and interesting facts about animals are presented to children in ways that make it easy for them to learn; for this reason, Zoobooks have already brought more information about our wild world to more children than any other series of books in history.
However, the impact of Zoobooks has not been as widely felt as it could have been...because distribution of books has been largely limited to children whose parents could afford the price of a subscription. The John Bonnett Wexo Foundation proposes to make Zoobooks available to a much wider audience of young people, by distributing free books to children through our Mobile Wildlife on Wheels Education Program.
Wildlife on Wheels is a mobile art and education program allowing children to interact, touch and learn about animals from the Discovering Our Wild World Sculpture. The project teacher will present a wildlife education program, answer questions and give each child a free Zoobook to take home. Everybody wins with this program. The sponsor receives a significant tax benefit and the satisfaction of providing important education to children. The children and their families benefit by learning so much more about wildlife and the world in which they live.
The biggest beneficiaries, of course, are the wild animals and their wild world.
