The Lovereading4Kids comment

Age 5+. This is a dazzling introduction to the incredible variety of life on Earth for children of all ages. Packed with compelling facts about the world’s species, it also clearly explains that habitats are being destroyed and species are being lost forever at an alarming rate due to what one species (humans) out of 1,750,000 on the Tree of Life is doing. Act now and go green or it may be too late.
