Every  month we receive the artistic work of hundreds and hundreds of talented children. It’s a tough task to select just a few of them to publish in each Zoobooks issue, but it delights us to think that all these kids, published or not,  are being inspired to create on a level they may not have attempted before.

Seeing their art really makes it clear that children are absorbing a great deal. We know they are learning from Zoobooks

overtly–all those new fun facts about giraffes have a way of creeping into conversation or school reports–but their art demonstrates how the grace, movement, and color shades of giraffes is being imparted as well. It’s not only beautiful, but somehow hopeful. We like thinking the newest generation will have a gut-level connection to the animals that need their help. Which drawing is your favorite? We bet you find it tough to choose, too.
