What do tigers, polar bears, rhinos, and many, many other animals have in common? The answer is that they are all becoming endangered because of changes in their habitats. Who is responsible for most of these changes? The answer: people.
From deforestation to ocean pollution and melting ice caps, devastating environmental changes are happening around the world. Without the proper habitats in which to live safely and find their food, animal populations will continue to decline.
Large, colourful photos, “kid-friendly” text and short sentences accompany the information provided in this book, one of the “All About Animals Close-Up” series.
As the annual observance of Earth Day approaches, these and many more books at the Stratford Public Library will introduce children to the fascinating world of animals and their habitats.
** Recommended for ages 5 to 8 years.
