Though it is often hard to read a book about endangered species, this one provides powerful reasons to preserve the animals that share our planet, and shouldn’t be missed. The illustrations alone will likely inspire budding naturalists to research their world in much more detail. Beautiful drawings and important lessons about conservation make this book a library must-have. Though the title of the book speaks about tigers, many animals’ lives are included as the reader examines causes of species’ endangerment and how people can truly make a difference.
