About the Author:

A former elementary school teacher, Jennifer Boothroyd has written many nonfiction books for children.

From Booklist:

By placing endangered animals alongside their extinct counterparts, the Animals in Danger series conveys to young readers the fragility of nature’s creatures. The books do this, of course, in the super-jazzed-up style that is trademark to the Lightning Bolt brand—namely, page after page of bright photos positioned against backgrounds of toy-store patterns and colors. Each title begins with a definition of the relevant species and then offers examples of endangered varieties, often presenting explanations of what has led to their regrettable status. Then the book switches over to extinct animals, illustrating them with photos, re-creations, biologic sketches, and fossils. Birds mentions the extinct dodo, moas, and passenger pigeons, the last of which died in 1914. The mood lightens with the back matter, which includes a “What You Can Do” page as well as an inspirational story of an animal comeback. Attention-grabbing, educational, and sure to spark an interest in sustainability. Grades 1-3. --Daniel Kraus
