A beautiful informational book about endangered animals and also an ABC book. Captivating images. It has clever and beautiful design, encompassing each animal into a letter shape and providing information about there endangered status. A wonderful classroom book for read aloud or as a reference for design and some scientific information. ( )

This book is an alphabet book that corresponds each letter to an endangered animal and gives basic information of that animal such as their class, habitat and threat.

Personal Reaction:
This book was great! i really like the detail that went into creating the letters to look like the endangered animals they represented! It is a great way to introduce not only the alphabet, but also the idea of conservation especially in today's world. Children learn about the animals such as their habitats, environments, classes, as well as the greatest threat they are facing.

Classroom Extension Ideas:
1. We could take a field trip to the zoo.
2. We could pick out favorite animal and have them create that animal in their habitat. ( )

• Summary of content/review: This book uses animals and their actions to convey the alphabet.
• Evaluation: Although this is an alphabet book, students are given illustrations of endangered animals, one for each of the letters of the alphabet (starting with the same letter). This book’s illustrations are incredible, in that they have sweeping lines and visible brush strokes.
• Target audience: 3rd-5th grade
• Connection to classroom: This book can be used to teach about endangered animals, as well as art styles.

Genre: alphabet

A book that goes through the alphabet listing an endangered species beginnings with each different letter and providing some information about them.
  ashleykalar | Oct 8, 2014 |
This is a very informative alphabet book. It only uses endangered species of animals. The introduction of the book is crucial it explains the animals and the threat level. The illustrations are done in black and white and are beautiful. This book is wonderful for the classroom. It gives a chance to inform children about these species and what we can do to help preserve them. I would recommend for grades 1st and up. ( )

Feast your eyes on these amazing creatures before they disappear.  This stampede of wild animals, from Chinese Alligator to Grevy's Zebra, are so rare, they're all endangered.  David McLiman's bold and playful illustrations transform each letter into a work of art, graphically rendered with animal characteristics.  Scales, horns, even insect wings transform the alphabet into animated life.
Once you take this eye-opening safari, you'll never look at letters or animals with the same way again.  A striking work of art and a zoological adventure, Gone Wild is sure to be loved by children and adults alike.
