This book is appropriate for grades from kindergarten through 8th grade, as it contains many different factors. In almost every, grade science standards say students should learn about different components in an ecosystem, and that different species rely on each other, much like pandas depend on humans in a way to avoid extinction, and pandas depend on bamboo to survive. For grades kindergarten through 4th, the book would be more beneficial as an interactive read-aloud, where the teacher can help explain some of the more complex information given. In 5th grade and middle school, the book could be used in small groups or individually for projects and assignments involving ecosystems, development, animals, environment, and many other topics.

This fun, non-fiction counting book teaches readers about endangered pandas.

Wow, talk about cute! This book had me at the first page, with a picture of a tiny newborn Panda being gently held in his mother’s mouth. But there’s much more to this book than adorable photos. Part concept book, part information text, it uses a counting motif to inform about pandas’ behavior and life cycle, including conservation efforts to protect the species and its habitat. A good balance of text and illustration makes this a good read for younger children. It also has nice supplemental resources for further exploration as part of a study on endangered animals.

This book is a nonfiction book about pandas. This book is a cute informational book students can read for their own enjoyment in animals/pandas. In this book, I enjoyed how the book had one common question, how many pandas are doing something, and each page has the number go up by one. While reading the book, readers are excited to see what the next question will be. For example, the first questions is "how many baby pandas have been born" and the reader can look at the picture to find the answer.
I also enjoyed the realistic photos the book included. The book is about pandas so readers want to see real pictures of baby pandas, adult pandas, groups of pandas and more. The pictures also were very clear and gave pandas a cute, cuddly image for the readers to enjoy reading about pandas.
The big idea in this book is to inform the reader all about pandas. The book provides all types of facts about pandas including how they grow up, what they eat and where they live to survive. ( )
