The world is not only home to billions of humans, but other kinds of living things as well. Humans have drastically changed the earth to make room for ourselves and to produce things we need. Some animals have learned to cope with the changes. Some have been unable to and have become extinct. Can we help those species who are struggling to survive in an ever changing environment?

This book is beautifully illustrated and the way it is written feels very personal. I learned a lot about some animals I did not even know were in danger of becoming extinct. This is a great book for kids who aren't aware of the harm people can do to animals by not being careful. Definitely a good book to have in the classroom. The theme is conscious living.

The book discusses endangered animals and gives a lot of information about those animals. The pictures are very beautiful snd realistic providing a very scientific perspective but still being very accesible for young children.

Martin Jenkins informs us about animals that are extinct such as the dodo, marsupial wolf and the great auk. He also tells us about endangered and animals such as the tiger, Asian elephant and partula snail. Some animals such as the American bison, Antarctic fur seal, and white rhinoceros used to be endangered, but are now doing quite well. Finally, some animals such as the whooping crane and Bermuda petrel are no longer on the verge of extinction, but are still very rare. Jenkins describes how humans have both helped and hurt these animals. He also emphasizes how important it is to try to save them.

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.

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.
