Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful book with wonderful images. I do regret that it is not a hardback, as the book is quite floppy, but the quality of content makes up for this inconvenience. I would recommend this book for any child who loves animals and want to know more about nearly extinct species.

I bought this book to help my Brownie Pack with their Environment Badge. Arrived promptly and as described. Would have preferred 'real' photos instead of drawings but information was very well written and suitable for age group 7-10.

Pleasantly surprised 25 May 2006
By L. Ashworth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My son received this book as a gift from his first grade teacher for entering a project into the science fair. He enjoys reading this book over and over again. This book has made him think about all the different types of animals and how the envoriment can cause them harm. This book gives the description of the animal, size, location and what may be the cause of their extinction. It not only teaches about the worlds rarest animals but in the back of the book there is a world map of all the locations listed within the book. I believe that this book is great for educating our children on both science and geography. I would recommend this book to any science and animal lover.

BEAUTIFUL BOOK! 6 Jan 2008
By Say No to Plastics - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was really surprised by how much impact this one book had on me and my 4 yr old. This book is so simply beautifully illustrated, informative, and eye opening even to adults. Some animals have fewer than 20 left on the earth and will most likely be gone forever. It helps open discussion for young kids about the earth they will inherit and simple things kids can do to help. I will be giving these out as gift to parents with kindergarden and first grader kids.

Very informative for kids. Great book! 17 April 2014
By Krysi Joseph aka boekverslaafde - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Something that cannot be stressed enough, are endangered species! This is a wonderful books to teach kids about the animals and what's happening to them. This is a subject that needs to be brought up to kids at a very young age, so they know what's going on, and the sooner they know about it, the more apt they are to grow up and do something about it. I've read this to my child, and the kids at the elementary school I volunteer at. Uncountable.times. The children love it and ask more questions about the animals, ask why they're disappearing, ask why can't we help them. It's amazing how 2nd & 3rd graders seem to care more about the earth and it's inhabitants than the general population does!
