What APS members said about these books: These books tell the story of children learning about an animal and the conservation efforts to protect it, replicating a high-quality field trip experience. Includes activities students can do at home or school. Illustrations are a mix of photographs and watercolors that are a little lacking in coherence. – Debary Children’s Book Awards
