This is a good book for a young adult who has a strong interest in pandas and their endangerment. It would also be a great addition to any home school library. It is packed with fascinating facts about pandas & how they live. The book starts out with a profile of the panda bear. This encompasses ancestry, classification, diet, socialization, mating and how they care for their young. Next, a history of how pandas were discovered is covered. The rest of the book is dedicated to the plight of the vanishing pandas including poaching & their threatened habitat. A discussion of captivity & breeding programs, as well as current action plans to save them is also detailed. A glossary & suggested readings are a nice bonus. My only wish was for better pictures. All are small and are in black & white.
