Every day is a great day to celebrate reading aloud! Send in a photo of your learners reading to each other or their favourite soft toy animals and go in the draw to win a centre prize pack that will include a copy of Bambi the Blind Alpaca, featured in the February issue of Kind Matters!

Send your photo to us at: education@spca.nz

Make sure to include what centre you work at and a few sentences about the photo.

If you would like some ideas on what to read, we have put together a list of suggested animal welfare storybooks for tamariki. These stories explore various animal welfare topics, animal needs, animal care, empathy and compassion. To view our Animal Welfare Storybooks, click here
