Can We Save the Tiger by Martin Jenkins book review
This is a beautifully illustrated non-fiction picture book that discusses the differences between extinct and endangered animals. The author begins with animals that are extinct and then moves on to endangered animals. The author also talks about animals that have been near extinction but because of conservation efforts, have been saved. The author includes information about where each animal lives, how many are remaining and the problems that have led these animals to become extinct or endangered. Vicky White's illustrations are a great addition to the book. The author concludes the book with web sites that readers can visit for more information about endangered animals and conservation efforts. This is a great book for children who love animals and prefer non-fiction picture books. Recommended for ages 7-10, but people of all ages will enjoy this book.
