Skrbim za svojo živalico – “I care for my animal

 

“Skrbim za svojo živalico”  is a collection of poems, decorated with colourful illustrations for our young ones and all other who loves animals. It serves as a guide to a healthy relationship with animals. It is an educational picture book with poems how to take care of animals and have a mindful relationship with them. It is not just for kids but for all adults who like great educational literature and colourful pictures.

The book consist of 8 poems, each equipped with a full spread of colourful illustrations. What I like the most is that each chapter  – at the end –  has a special corner for parents, with useful tips, how to properly educate their youngsters about animal care.

A collection of poems, to teach us a mindful relationship towards animals.

I could say, book is a tiny animal handbook written as a poetry, which everyone, who comes in contact with our little furry friends, should have. We should talk more about right animal care, specially  in early stages of human life, therefore these poems are designed for kids. But as we all adults sometimes loose ourselves on a path of good practice, this book can also serve us – adults.

I’ve gathered some of the photos of the book and showed my process of creating illustrations in this blog post. If you are interested more,  you can also take a moment and visit the book’s Facebook Page. The book is also available in all book store’s and you can also order it online.
