9780716765257: Aye-Ayes, Bears, and Condors: An ABC of Endagered Animals and Their Babies

For each letter of the alphabet, this book introduces the reader to an endangered animal family using illustrations and rhymes. While the reader works on their ABC's they can also learn about a new species and about improving the environment for all living things.

From Publishers Weekly:

Like a number of other recent abecedaries and counting books--most memorably, Amanda Wallwork's No Dodos (Children's Forecasts, Nov. 8)--this title raises environmentalist consciousness as it teaches fundamentals. Here, indigenous folk motifs frame pastel portraits on black backgrounds, while a rhyming text spotlights one or two obvious characteristics of the featured creatures. Exotics like the uakari and the numbat mingle with familiar, well-publicized species (the condor, northern spotted owl and gray wolf). Twinem's verses lead to easy memorizing on the part of pre-readers who wish to "read" the book alone: "Fierce and stealthy ferrets go out hunting in the night. / Gorilla gobbles juicy leaves, with baby holding tight." Appended are a map and gazetteer containing additional information on the various endangered species and a sensible list of "What You Can Do to Help." Ages 2-5.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-An attractive, alphabetical introduction to the world's endangered wildlife. Striking, full-page chalk drawings show 25 species caring for their offspring (and the dodo bird for eXtinct), each accompanied by a somewhat forced rhyme. Set against black backgrounds, the pages are decorated with borders "inspired by the cultures of people native to each animal's environment." The last double-page spread has a map showing where the featured animals live and a short description of why they are endangered. Amanda Wallwork's No Dodos (Scholastic, 1993), with its simple, brightly colored illustrations, is more suited to preschoolers, but is less informative.
