Extraordinary Endangered Animals Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the puffin to the spectacled bear, the takin to the white giraffe, the tree kangaroo to the hammerhead shark, each of the seventy-two two-page spreads in this book covers a different species and its natural habitat in detail, as well as its relationship with mankind. Extraordinary Endangered Animals includes large-format photographs, illustrations, maps that indicate each animals habitat, and in-depth text that covers each animals unique features and provides key figures, interesting trivia, and information on major threats to the species survival.

Review:

"Detailed, large-scale photographs and intricate drawings depict 35 endangered species from around the globe, including the California condor, the sea otter, the golden lion tamarin, and the sawfish. Silhol and Guérive describe the habitat, behavior, and endangered status of each animal, while sidebars place each in human context, implicating our role in their endangerment ('The black-footed ferret can no longer feed itself when the prairie dog, its favorite meal, falls victim to intensive farming'). Honest but not downbeat, this informative collection encourages readers to take action before these species disappear. Ages 9 — 12." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
