Bold illustrations, big flaps, and an ingenious die-cut design invite young readers to peek at the lives of endangered animals and learn how to help. Did you know that a giant panda likes to do somersaults? That a black rhinoceros can run faster than an Olympic sprinter? That a monarch butterfly flies up to eighty miles a day? All of these animals and many more, from tigers to elephants to polar bears, orangutans to dolphins, penguins to sea turtles are disappearing, threatened by deforestation, poaching, fishing nets, global warming, and more. After enjoying the book s eye-catching, dramatic format, kids can follow the simple suggestions offered to help save the animals."
