Product reviews for Tails from the Classroom

Donna Carlyle, Lecturer, Northumbria University, and former early years mental health specialist/psychotherapist
Tails from the Classroom is a detailed, thorough and comprehensive pulling together of how our lives with animals are intimately entangled throughout time.-¯Packed with empirical and anecdotal evidence which reviews the field of anthrozoology and the humanities, it offers wonderful insights into the many benefits of our interspecies relationships. Furthermore, it provides a practical guide for teachers and professionals involved in supporting children's learning and their social and emotional well-being. 

Covering the latest research - ranging from reading-to-dogs schemes to animal-assisted interventions for children and young people with complex and additional needs - it sets out a compelling case for more
child-animal entanglements in educational settings.-¯Using a variety of case studies, figures and tables, Helen and Russell present the related theory and concepts for those interested in the effective implementation
of these interventions. In doing so, they illustrate the accompanying enhancements to child development, learning and well-being - and make clear that the case for a -˜pet pedagogy' is unequivocal and should be embraced alongside current curricula.
