This is an innovative introduction to conservation for very young children, using rhythmic language, novelty surprises and ten engaging endangered animals. Chomp, stomp, slide and splash! From the elephant stomping across the African plains to the penguin skidding across the ice; from the tropical rainforest to frozen Siberia - inside are ten animals from across the world whose existence is threatened. Interact with each animal with a novelty surprise on each page - wallow in the mud with the rhino, splash through the waves with the dolphin and join the panda climbing up a tree! Frances Barry's stylish and endearing collage illustrations are the perfect introduction to endangered animals around the world. This is a book about environmental conservation for the youngest readers. It features gorgeous cut-paper illustrations of animals in their habitats, along with oversized flaps and die-cuts, make this book a one-of-a-kind. It includes a list of things kids and families can do to get involved and help stop global warming and habitat destruction, two main causes of animal endangerment.
