Let Jodie Cooper’s sweet and stylish picture book bring the world of nature to life for your little boy and girl. Together, you will learn about the whales, lions, zebras, penguins, and other animals now at risk around the globe.

From the gruff-looking, enormous African elephant to the alert and cuddly-looking koala, each creature featured here is accompanied by fascinating information that will both educate and entertain. Cooper introduces facts for each animal, alongside her beautiful illustrations. The animals tells their “stories” about where they are from, facts about their species, and the challenges they face because the wild lands they inhabit are disappearing.

The Beluga whale is called the “canary of the sea,” because of its whistling ability and dangers to its habitat. The Magellanic Penguin tells young readers, “my habitat is threatened by climate change causing heavy rains that flood my nesting areas. I get caught and drown in fishery nets. Chronic oil pollution from ocean tankers remains my greatest threat.”

The recurring refrain and title of the book “please leave me be while I still am” is a powerful call to action aimed as a message young animal lovers can understand.

“A true conservationist is a man who knows that the world is not given by the fathers, but borrowed from hsi children.”–John James Audubon
