As a mother of two small girls, I am always looking for new and interesting books to capture their imagination and interest. Animals are always a huge hit with them and this book had them hooked.
The writing was great. For my kids, I’ve noticed that rhymes really help keep their interest, especially in longer books. The mixture of both information and facts of each animal with ways humans are harming their environment and animals was very informative while keeping it simple for a three year old. It was very thought provoking for children opening up the discussion of how our actions impact our environment and how it can disrupt others lives.
The illustrations were extremely beautiful. They were colorful and and really breathtaking. What i really enjoyed was how some of the illustrations included part of the story to it. For example, when littering was mentioned, the illustration included garbage to enhance the understand for kids and show how it really does effect the animals life. The amount of detail for each animal was done amazingly. She really took her time to study each animal and made sure they were drawn properly.
All in all this book was great. I loved the message it gave about protection or environment along with the animals that belong to it. I loved the illustrations and how it enhanced the storytelling of the book. I loved the ease of reading this to my kids. It was a fun, great read
A strong book, even if it relies heavily on quite simplistic rhyming and at-times dodgy meter, this is from the point of view of endangered species, all writing (and signing with a paw-print – except for the whale, of course) their own plight in poetry. So they each get to lambast the problems we cause them, whether it be habitat loss, or some pathetic excuse for hunting them, and ask us rhetorically what we expect to find in their specific place in the food chain if we manage to kill them off. In actual fact, this is quite a successfully hard-hitting book, then, but I did find the verse a little on the doggerel side at times. Still, I think the message is too important to dismiss, and the artwork really makes this book a winner too, so I'll still encourage the purchase of volumes from this series.
This book had a lovely message, really nice art, and my kiddos loved the verses told from the point of view of the animals.
I loved the images in this book and they are the main reason I have given this such a high rating - they made the book for me.
I liked the layout of the book and that each animal gets it own mini feature. The book is lovely in that it rhymes where possible too which makes it an easy read, even if the subject matter is sad. It does show how key conservation is to making sure these animals survive for future generations to enjoy.
It is 4 stars from me for this one.
