A Wild Child's Guide to Endangered Animals: is a well-researched book for both children and adults. Millie Marotta has organized the book by habitat (ocean, forest, desert, fresh water, grasslands, tundra and wetlands). At the start of each section is a brief description of the habitat, followed by the profiles of animals that live there. Each of the 43 species has an interesting written description and beautiful artwork. I love that the author includes animals from many Classes (birds, mammals, fish, reptiles ...more

My son and I read this one. The illustrations are beautiful. Each animal has a description and info about extinction. We did enjoy this book, learning a bit on the way. It would be a good compliment to another informational animal book. The only thing I didnt like was it seemed to be lacking info or stats about the animal.

This is a gorgeous book telling the stories of some of the most vulnerable species. This is an easy way to get kiddos interested in preserving the habitats of these endangered species, and others. I can't rave enough about how beautiful the illustrations are--it's like someone colored in those adult coloring books, choosing all of the right colors and adding their own texture to the drawings.

This really isn't a children's book, and as a reference book it lacks a bit. What makes this piece outstanding is the artwork. Completely mesmerizing illustrations capture texture and detail of endangered species. An absolutely wonderful coffee table book.

I won a copy of this book from goodreads' giveaway.

A beautifully illustrated book full of informative facts presented in an entertaining way on endangered species that don't get much attention.

Easily enjoyed by anyone, young or old.
