School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-Brief, basic information on specific endangered animals. Each simply written text begins with a discussion about the family and species of the creature, and describes what it looks like and where it lives. Short paragraphs cover food, habits, and life cycle, and note some unusual facts. The last section in each volume explains why the animal is endangered and what is being done to protect it. Each page includes a few lines of text and an appealing and informative color photo. Each book also has a fact file, a table of statistics on five animals in 1900 and today, a one-page glossary, a list of conservation organizations, and a few titles for further reading. Good for beginning reports, for children interested in animals, or as an introduction to the topic.-Sally Bates Goodroe, formerly at Harris County Public Library, Houston, TX (c) Copyright 2010.
