From Booklist:

The delicate relationship between animals and humans is a guiding theme of this book, which focuses on the oft-misunderstood lions of the African savanna. Topics include habitats, social behaviors, hunting strategies, the lion’s place in history and popular culture, and threats to their continued survival. Each chapter concludes with a Rescue Challenge, which includes a hands-on activity designed to work toward a specific conservation goal. All rescue activities are tiered from novice to extreme so that students can take on as much of a challenge as they choose. Full-color photographs live up to the National Geographic standard and share space with comical cartoons, thematic maps, and infographics. Scientists performing conservation fieldwork are heavily highlighted, and a list of scientific papers that outline current research on lions is included in the back matter. Dynamic and fact-laden, this entry in the National Geographic Kids Mission series seeks to foster curiosity about conservation issues that are a world away for most readers and encourages them to action. Grades 5-8. --Erin Anderson
