Following the introduction which informs the reader why some animals (and plants) are endangered, some even extinct, and what is being done to help, we then learn about the first endangered animal in this book: the Sand Cat. 9 more animals are featured in this book:
Red Squirrel * Snow Leopard * Pileated Gibbon * Galapagos Penguin * Giant Panda * Mandarin Duck * Ring-Tailed Lemur of Madagascar * Newfoundland Pine Marten * Amur Leopard
Each animal is accompanied by a 'description' page, a coloring picture for you to bring it 'back to life' and then more information with bolded highlights. What's sadly missing in this book is the severity of the endangerment i.e. how many are estimated to be left in the wild. I think this fact would have truly rounded this very interesting book out. IMPORTANT to note that the animals listed are the author's/artist's choice and not the Top 10 endangered animals. In fact one animals is listed as "common" and another as "most popular" of its breed!
The coloring pictures are aimed towards children. For example, the Sand Cat is shown on the beach in front of a sand castle whilst the Giant Panda has a balloon beside it. HOWEVER adults will also enjoy coloring the pictures.
Mostly well written except for the following:
"This leopard can leap on average, more than 10ft far and 10ft high."
