The Lovereading4Kids comment

A host of softly drawn animals whose habitats are endangered by humans are shown in their own worlds. The book’s message is that we must all share the world and respect the different needs of each other. Under the sea tiny porpoises can get caught in fishing nets; in the forests giant pandas need thick plantations of bamboos to survive. Humans must think carefully before they damage the homes of these creatures.

Synopsis

It's My World Too: Discover Endangered Animals and Their Habitats by Elena Pasquali, Tina MacNaughton

This beautifully illustrated yet sincere picture book features an adorable cast of animals from around the world to encourage children to practice respect for the planet and the animals that share it with us. Heartfelt conversations between mother and baby animals (pandas, elephants, snow leopards, chimps and porpoises) highlight how both global and local human impact is threatening their habitats, but also the things - both natural and human - that go to make it a better place. With a hole-in-the-page novelty, 'think about' boxes and a pleaful refrain from the animals to remember 'it's my world too', this book is playful in approach but with a serious message at heart, to give children an awareness of important environmental issues and encouragement to be kind to their planet.

'A worthy addition to a complex subject.'
