Inspiring a kinder generation: our fourth series of storybooks is here!

07 June 2022

Focusing on responsible animal ownership and a number of key welfare topics, SPCA's latest lot of storybooks for tamariki have just landed in every primary school in the country.

Inspiring a kinder generation: our fourth series of storybooks is here!

Preventing cruelty to animals (which is in our name here at SPCA) means long-term thinking, and focusing on what we can do today to see change tomorrow.

One of the main means to ensure future generations of New Zealand’s companion animals have better lives is to work with tamariki to inspire a kinder generation. This is why SPCA has developed an extensive education programme, including our Learn-to-read storybooks.

After the success of our first three series, SPCA is delighted to announce the launch of its fourth series of inspiring stories for kids to learn all about how to care for animals, while developing their reading skills at the same time.

In every primary school in the country

Levelled in alignment with the Ministry of Education’s colour wheel, the books have been provided free to every primary school in the country. SPCA is eager to eliminate as many barriers as possible to young Kiwis being able to access these invaluable resources, and thanks to the generosity of our supporters, now every child at school will be able to enjoy them. This nationwide distribution makes it easy for schools to integrate the entire series seamlessly into their guided reading resource collection and classroom literacy programme.

As well as being available to kids in the classroom, the books are available to purchase online, and can be bought for anyone looking for an inspiring, engaging gift for the young animal-lovers in their life.

The books and associated resources available on our Teachers’ Portal inspire young Kiwis to take action and make a difference in the lives of all New Zealand’s animals.
