This book is heavy! But... I think it because of the quality of the paper for the pictures, and OH MY! the pictures!! Absolutely gorgeous and stunning you almost want to question if they are real. The photography throughout is absolutely amazing. Then the illustrations make even the oddest of creatures appear to be possibly cuddly.

I also love the format. A giant full page photograph, another photo in a snapshot frame and bulleted facts on a note page make it interesting and appealing to look at

I don't normally add non-fiction to my Goodreads - I just don't read enough of them - but this one really had me mesmorized. The photographs are large, vivid and highlight the poses of the creature (they almost look like they are posing!). The information of each animal is brief (4-5 paragraphs at most) but give enough for the reader to know how each one is unique and focuses on their role in our ecosystem. Amazing!
This is a beautiful book with full color glossy photographs of some really interesting endangered animals. This would be a great book for teaching kids about endangered species. It has a nice glossary in the back and has a few pages of things that kids can do to help these endangered animals. Great way to teach kids how they can get involved.
