Overview

With its large, friendly face and eyes exaggerated by black eye patches, China's national treasure, the giant panda, is instantly recognizable.

Giant pandas spend most f their time trying to eat enough bamboo to survive. The rest is spent conserving energy, and solitary pandas can be seen strolling along, stopping to recline on riverside rocks or amongst ferns. The lower body-weight and physical size of panda cubs mean that they have more energy to spend, and are seen climbing trees, play-fighting, doing somersaults and playing with bamboo.

Panda is a unique and intimate portrait of one of the world's best-loved animals. The extraordinary lives of the giant panda and the enchanting red panda are captured throughout the seasons in their remote mountain habitat. This selection of over 200 remarkable pictures shows pandas feeding, resting, playing, climbing trees and even sliding down snowy slopes, as well as showcasing the misty peaks and snow-clad forests of the beautiful Sichuan Province of China. Panda is a heart-warming and illuminating tribute to an endangered species that is loved the world over.

This book is a must rrad for panda lovers. I got this book in hard cover at the San Deigo zoo when my panda obession began. ;) So good, don't miss out. It has breath taking photos that make you feel like you are right their. I loved the awesome picture of a young panda in a tree. However, i would have enjoyed some more facts on their mating. I saw a cool biography on the sceience chanel that had more information on this topic. I found it boring at first,(only because I was 7, and wasn't great at reading, but I wad fassinatef to see the pictures. All in all, a great book for a great read. Don't think that this is just some kiddy preschooler book, or that this is just for kids. I think adults will like it too. Please take the time to read this book. It is worth your $10. Thos book is awesome! I recommend it to ages 8+. Enjoy!! Alexandria -The heir to Jamisa
