The Lovereading4Kids comment
Many species in the world face extinction but can we humans do anything about it or are we perhaps the root cause? Find out what happened 65 million years ago when dinosaurs were wiped out and find out what species are on the way out now. This book tells you that if everyone does a little something to reset the ecological balance there’s a chance we can save some of the species on the brink now from becoming extinct.
