The Wolves Are Back by Jean Craighead George

Two renowned children’s book creators teamed up to make this stirring picture book that tells the story of how, over a century, wolves were persecuted in the United States and nearly became extinct. Gradually reintroduced, they are thriving again in the West, much to the benefit of the ecosystem. This book will teach a new generation to appreciate the grace, dignity, and value of wolves as it promotes awareness of the environment’s delicate balance. Paired with gorgeous paintings by landscape artist Wendell Minor, Jean Craighead George’s engaging text will inspire people of all ages to care about the protection of endangered species.

An amazingly beautiful book about the wisdom of nature and what happens when it becomes unbalanced.  when the wolves are reintroduced into Yellowstone park, a chain reaction takes place among all life there that benefits them.  it is an interesting story that is very educational.  I would like to add that the illustrations are beautiful.

This is a great book for understanding food chains and carrying capacity of lands. My 4th grader class discussions based on this book were intelligent and showed great understanding how removing a top predator in an ecosystem impacts all parts of the ecosystem. Pictures are great, and not too graphic for sensitive kids. The ideas kids understood from this book were easily transferred over to where we live in CA.
