Overview


With dramatic full-color photos and illustrations on every page, this thought-provoking book takes young readers on a trip around the world, giving them a bird's-eye view of the planet's most endangered animals. Separate sections on two-page spreads describe each animal's relationship to its environment, the threats to its survival, and steps being taken by environmentally conscious men and woman who are trying to save each of these species from extinction. Among the endangered animals shown and discussed are--

  • Members of the whale family
  • Orangutans of southeast Asia
  • Tigers of southern Asia
  • Pandas of China
  • Mountain Gorillas of central Africa
  • Polar Bears of northern Canada . . . and others

    The book's attractive added features include an illustrated Planet Animal Fun Quiz, a world map that locates habitats of endangered animals, and illustrated pull tabs and page flaps that present interesting sidebar information about many of the animals. Readers get an extra bonus in the form of an enclosed, full-color, fold-out tiger poster that will look great on kids' bedroom or playroom walls.

    Publishers Weekly

    This interactive, oversize book pairs information about endangered species and their habitats with attention-grabbing details. Accompanying full-color photographs are panels, tabs and removable cards that enliven animal descriptions ("gharials have long, pointy snouts packed with teeth") along with reasons that each is endangered. In the "Saving the turtles" section, lifting an image of a sea turtle reveals panels about their birthing habits. For all the showy visuals, the stark message is resounding: "Can you imagine a world without gorillas, tigers, and polar bears?" Ages 8-up. (May)
