Animals in Danger!
Big Bats, Small Bats
Dancing Lemurs

These are the A-I topics included in this real-photograph picture book. In addition to descriptions of endangered animals, there are vocabulary words in bold throughout the book such as poachers, predators, primates, migrate, preserves, captivity, etc. Here is sample of the animal descriptions.

"The rhinoceros, or rhino, is the second largest land animal, after the elephant. There are five species of rhinos. Black rhinos and white rhinos live in Africa. Javan, Sumatran, and Indian rhinos live in Asia."

There are real photographs of all five rhinos as well.
