"Can We Save the Tiger?" is a beautifully written and illustrated children's book about the animals that are extinct or endangered because of what humans have done to their habitat. However it isn't one of those preachy books about global warming (I'm kinda sick of those). Instead it encourages people to really think about the effect our choices have on the animal species that live around us. We need to remember that we are not the only species who are entitled to this home we call Earth. I learned quite a bit about how introducing a species of animal not native to the land can wipe out animals that had lived there for thousands of years.
The illustrations are so beautiful and unique. While giving life to the animals they are portraying, they really pack a punch when the text reveals that we are so very close to losing them. I love the way the illustrations fade to black and white.
