Riassunto: This volume is part of a series which introduces young readers to different animals, their behaviour and lifestyles. Each of the featured animals is in danger and the series explains the concept of endangerment, extinction and animal protection at a very simple level. Each book in the series provides a general introduction to animals in danger, before focusing on the specific animal featured in the book. The books follow an animal through its daily life, looking at its appearance, behaviour, habitat, special characteristics and so on. Each then explains why the animal is in danger, what the danger is and what measures are being taken to restrict or prevent the danger. Care is taken to explain the difference between danger from humans and from the environment, as well as the "natural" danger that animals face in the wild.
From Booklist: Reviewed with Rod Theodorou's Leatherback Sea Turtle .
Gr. 2-4. Books in the Animals in Danger series use simple text and colorful photographs to introduce young readers to some of the world's endangered species. Each volume begins with a short explanation of the terms endangered and extinction . It then focuses on one species, exploring habitat, behavior, mating habits, and possibilities for its future. A final section tabulates more useful information, and each book includes a simple glossary, suggestions for further reading, and addresses of conservation agencies. The texts are clear, and the photographs will hold the interest of very young readers, but there's not enough information for serious research. Consider this series entry an enhancement to an existing collection of animal books. Heather Hepler
