Synopsis

Planet Animal Saving Earth's Disappearing Animals by Barbara Taylor

Planet Animal showcases some of the world's best-loved animals now at risk due to hunting, habitat destruction, and more recently, climate change. Featuring a host of animals, from polar bears, to elephants and albatrosses, this book uses a new, dynamic format and sumptuous photographs, to explore each animal in the context of its habitat. The special features, such as flaps and pull-outs help the reader to get a sense of how each animal moves, hunts or migrates, and quick reference booklets and number icons explain clearly the reasons why the animals are threatened, how many are left, and what is being done to help them.The special items include: a researcher's-eye view of a mountain gorilla's day; fascinating fact cards on 6 types of crocodile; a handy guide to an elephant's favourite foods; and a pull-out booklet on endangered rhinos.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
