This book is essentially a list of facts about Giant Pandas with corresponding illustrations, which are occasionally diagrammed. I can't really think of much of a theme other than information, which hardly counts. Most pages are just non-sequitur informational panels with facts about diet, communication, parenting, etc.

I had trouble trying to think of ways to teach this book in a secondary curriculum. Maybe a science teacher could utilize it in some way, but it seems more appropriate for an elementary classroom. While I'm quite interested in pandas, I don't think listing panda facts would be good pedagogy. ( )

This book is all about pandas. Full of information relating to their characteristics, eating habits and reproduction cycle. Can use this is a science lesson on how the environment and human influences can effect the population of certain creatures in the wild. For a student who is interested in wildlife and science this is the book for them. ( )

This is a good book to use when studying differnt animals in the classroom because it gives plenty of information on a specific animal, the giant panda. It provides good descriptions of physical attributes of a giant panda and their lifestyles, while also having amazing illustrations. ( )
