Animals are a part of many children’s lives and that’s a good thing because there are some truly amazing benefits of raising kids around animals. Animals large and small love, teach, delight, and offer a special kind of companionship for children and adults.
Whether your companion animal is a dog, cat, fish, turtle, chicken, horse, hamster, lizard or pig, there are so many wonderful effects on kids that grow up having animals around.
Here below is a lovely set of vintage found photos from liquidnight that captured children expressing their feelings for animals.
