My First Pop-Up Endangered Animals - Celebrating "Earth Day" [Review & Giveaway USA/CANADA]

ISBN: 978153622844
$18.99 US ~ Ages 3-7

My thoughts: 
Kids love pop-up books and they engender a need to "care for the book" since the pop-ups are fragile. In this sturdy board book, the endangered animals are sparingly illustrated in soft-yet-bold coloration. Young readers will love the element of pop-up illustrations as they give a more thorough sense of the creatures presence. Subtle, but real.

The scope of creatures dying out of existence since they are "endangered" may be beyond the youngest readers; yet with repetitive reads, they can begin to understand the animal's plight. 

The world-wide sense of creatures disappearing is given as each animal's locale is noted as well as a brief, informative, descriptive statement about the animal.

A good book to have around for children to begin to understand the plight of many of Earth's animals.

About the book: Discover fifteen remarkable animals in danger of disappearing from our world, portrayed in Owen Davey’s striking, stylized 3D illustrations.

The Gal├ípagos penguin. The western gorilla of Africa. The blue whale—the largest creature to have ever lived. Award-winning artist Owen Davey pays tribute to these and a dozen more endangered animals in arresting pop-ups rendered in his signature style. Capturing everything from the intricate patterns of the geometric tortoise to the bright feathers of the kakapo parrot to the stripes and patches of the adorable red panda, these eye-catching images are paired with brief facts about the animals, reminding readers of the vital roles they play on our planet.
