This book isn't lengthy; but it's an ABC book with an important message about the importance of saving our endangered and threatened animal species. The book is red, white and black, with each letter of the alphabet corresponding to the first letter in an animal's name. All letters correspond to the animals' common names (except for X, which is the Latin name). The first-page "Introduction" gives the definitions of "critically endangered," "endangered," and "vulnerable" species. These are important for students to understand the book. Each letter cleverly depicts the shape of the animal's body and each page includes a small sidebar that lists factual information: Class, Habitat, Range, Threats and Status Listed. The endangered animals represented in the book range from alligator to characin, earwig, jay, moth, plover, rhino, stark, wolf, and zebra. Several pages are dedicated to rectangular boxes that include three to five sentences that include more information about each animal. On the last page, the author has included a list of 10 websites and seven books that students might research for more information about endangered animals. This book has an attractive cover that grabbed my attention. It's a classic style ABC book, though a step up with brief information about some of the most threatened animals on earth.… (mere)
