Summary: As the title suggests, this book is about a variety of Endangered Animals. Response: I am always fascinated by animals which made this book fun to look at and read. Connection: A fun book for science and working on the word, Endangered. Students love learning about rare animals.

The art for this book reminded me of Eric Carle ("Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What did You See?"). It goes through a short description of 28 animals, it tells you the number thought to still exist, if any, while telling you where they are located as well. I thought it was very interesting and I liked at the end how they mentioned a few animals that were brought back from the brink. Would have been nice if they said why they choose these animals out of the thousands of others that have gone extinct or close to it.

I really like this book because it goes into detail about all the different animals that are going extinct, how it happened, and how many are left. The illustrations are beautiful and are collage painted paper. I really like how the book talks about what one can do to get involved and educated about endangered animals. It also gives examples on how certain animals that were almost gone, are now coming back from people trying to protect them.
