This book is both an educational tool and a fun way for children to learn about some of the wonderful animals on the Endangered Species list. By appreciating some of the unique characteristics of interesting creatures like the Asian elephant, the bighorn sheep, the blue whale, and the Siberian tiger – just to name a few – children can better understand the peril these animals face unless humans act on their behalf.
By seeing the bright pink and cherry-colored feathers of the crimson wing flamingo, and learning about the long sticky tongue of the red eyed tree frog, a child can begin to imagine what this planet would be like without these fascinating creatures living upon it.
While this book is directed toward children ages four and up, adults of all ages will enjoy it too, as they see their little ones begin to grasp the meaning of conservation. To that end, everyone who buys a copy of Endangered Animals can benefit in the knowledge that 5% of the purchase price of each book will be donated to the Canadian Wildlife Federation.
