Of course, like most people that work with children, I love animals. That they are disappearing by our negligence, greed, etc. has me worried, but I am older. Children love animals almost innately. I think Earth Justice is powerful because they write from the point of view of the animal. They say it is a big bear hug when you work with them. That works for me and all of the children I work with.
