This is a great book to use when talking about different animals with children. It discusses all types of animals from around the world. It has amazing photographs and many interesting facts about each of the animals in the book. There are also different activities or games that are included on some of the pages that relate to the animal on the page. There is also a brainteasers quiz at the end that tests your knowledge of endangered animals. I rated this 5 out of 5 because I would highly recommend that any teacher use this book in his or her classroom. There is so much information that kids can understand, plus they get to have fun with the activities while reading it. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764162055, Hardcover)

With dramatic full-color photos and illustrations on every page, this thought-provoking book takes young readers on a trip around the world, giving them a bird's-eye view of the planet's most endangered animals. Separate sections on two-page spreads describe each animal's relationship to its environment, the threats to its survival, and steps being taken by environmentally conscious men and woman who are trying to save each of these species from extinction. Among the endangered animals shown and discussed are--

Members of the whale family Orangutans of southeast Asia Tigers of southern Asia Pandas of China Mountain Gorillas of central Africa Polar Bears of northern Canada . . . and others

The book's attractive added features include an illustrated Planet Animal Fun Quiz, a world map that locates habitats of endangered animals, and illustrated pull tabs and page flaps that present interesting sidebar information about many of the animals. Readers get an extra bonus in the form of an enclosed, full-color, fold-out tiger poster that will look great on kids' bedroom or playroom walls.
