About this title

Synopsis:

12 Amphibians Back from the Brink introduces 12 amphibians that were on the brink of extinction and made an amazing comeback. Facts about habitat and diet are included, along with the reasons why the species were threatened and the science behind the work that helped them survive.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4?6?This attractively designed, useful set highlights conservation success stories with clear, well-organized information. Descriptions of each animal, focusing on its threatened status, lead to news about successful efforts to address the dangers. Explanations are clear and concise. Readers learn how a variety of protection strategies, which include government intervention, captive breeding, and citizen activism, have resulted in improved outlooks for these creatures, though many are still in serious peril. Smooth writing avoids the sensationalism that the topic sometimes engenders, and headlinelike chapter titles add appeal. Fact-boxes provide current statistics, while occasional "Think About It" features ask readers follow-up questions related to the text. Though not exceptionally eye-catching, all of the photos include useful captions with additional species information. The lack of range maps is one disappointing feature in an otherwise strong series. VERDICT Robust selections.
