Emi and the Rhino Scientist (Scientists in the Field) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Terri Roth trudges through the thick, dark Sumatran jungle. Shes looking for a rhinoceros thats been seen in the area. Its a rare Sumatran rhino, the worlds smallest rhino and one of the most endangered mammals on the planet.Suddenly she spots a young female rhino through the tangle of ferns and trees. The stocky animal is covered in reddish hair, and her snout sports two stubby horns. The rhino walks right up to Terri. The scientist slowly reaches out her hand and touches the rhinos big nose. The wild rhinos curiosity and friendliness remind Terri of Emi, the female Sumatran rhino that lives at the Cincinnati Zoo where Terri works. Terri is working with Emi to help save Sumatran rhinos from extinction—one calf at a time.


Carson tells the true story of Terri Roth of the Cincinatti Zoo, whose mission is to save rare Sumatran rhinos from extinction--one calf at a time. Full color.
