Pub. Date:
Breathtaking illustrations combine with poetry and fascinating facts about endangered or threatened animals to give young readers an intriguing look at the contemporary problem of species endangerment. Focusing on four different environments, the series looks at the situations of various animals, explains why they are in danger, and looks at possible ways to save them. Each animal is also paid homage by both the beautiful paintings of wildlife artist Jean Sherlock, and by the touching and elegant poetry of various writers, such as William Blake, D. H. Lawrence, Jane Yolen, and more. Supports the national science education standards Unifying Concepts and Processes: Systems, Order, and Organization; Unifying Concepts and Processes: Evolution and Equilibrium; Life Science; and Science in Personal and Social Perspectives as outlined by the National Academics of Science and endorsed by the National Science Teachers Association.
