The team behind the award-winning APE returns with an inspiring look at a range of endangered species sure to engage every child who loves animals.

(Ages 5-7)

Tigers are pretty special -- and so are ground iguanas and partula snails and even white-rumped vultures. But these and many other animals are in danger of disappearing altogether, joining the dodo, the marsupial wolf, the great auk, and countless other animals we will never see again. Using the experiences of a few endangered species as examples, Martin Jenkins highlights the ways human behavior can either threaten or conserve the amazing animals that share our planet. Vicky White's stunning portraits of rare creatures offer a glimpse of nature's grace and beauty -- and give us a powerful reason to preserve it.
Back matter includes online resources and an index.

Humans have changed the world a lot over the years. Some plants and animals have coped well with these changes, but others haven’t. What can we do about this situation? Illus. with pencil drawings.

Lovely illustrations, and great information but not overwhelming. An excellent introduction to the concept of endangered and extinct animals. Lyrical and factual both. Good for 5 – 9 years old.
