Description

A wonderful comparative introduction to animals and humans for children which is written in Charles Kovacs's warm and expressive style.

Charles Kovacs taught in Edinburgh so there is a Scottish flavour to the animals discussed in the first half of the book, including seals, red deer and eagles. In the later chapters, he covers elephants, horses and bears.


This is a fascinating and engaging resource for teachers and home schoolers which is used in the Steiner-Waldorf curriculum for 9-11 year olds.

About Charles Kovacs

Charles Kovacs was born in Austria. He left his native country in 1938 at the time of the Anschluss and joined the British Army in East Africa. After the War, he settled in Britain, and in 1956 he took over a class at the Rudolf Steiner School in Edinburgh, where he remained a class teacher until his retirement in 1976. He died in 2001.
