Project Idea: Children Raised by Animals

The phrase "feral children" refers to children who are raised by wild animals, from the Latin word fera, meaning "wild animal." There are mythological stories of this type that you can find around the world involving all different kinds of animals.

Research Tip: The place to start your research is the Wikipedia article on Feral Children, and the list of Feral Children Legends, where you will find stories going back to ancient times. One of the most famous legends is that of Tarzan, and you can find that book at the Freebookapalooza: Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs.
