US I Wonder Why the Dodo is Dead by Andrew Charman


US I Wonder Why the Dodo is Dead by Andrew Charman

This highly popular and long-running series has been revamped for a new generation of readers, with a clean, crisp redesign and colourful covers. The series explores questions that young readers ask about the world around them in an unrivalled child-friendly style. The conversational format is perfect for delivering solid information in a natural, amusing and imaginative way. Why did all of the dinosaurs die? Why is a boat bad for a manatee? You'll be surprised when you find out why! The answers to these important and topical questions--as well as others about extinct and endangered animals will inform and delight readers of all ages. Youngsters will be amazed at the dangers to animals, conservation efforts, and what they can do to help save future generations of animals from extinction. Sensitive to today's environmental issues, this book is a welcome and timely addition to any bookshelf.
