Head to the mountains of China to study panda bears in this beautiful nonfiction field guide for kids.
You might know that pandas like to snack on bamboo, but there’s so much more to find out about this mysterious black-and-white bear! Turn the pages to discover where pandas like to spend their summers, and how cute they are as newly-born cubs.
Filled with simple science and plenty of animal facts, this book also explains how poaching and deforestation made pandas an endangered species—and what needs to be done to protect their habitats in the future.
Written by giant panda expert Vanessa Hull, and featuring stunning illustrations by Charlotte Molas, Giant Panda (Young Zoologist) is part of an exciting new series of animal books from Neon Squid aiming to inspire the next generation of biologists and conservationists.
"There’s plenty in these 32 pages to learn and amuse. I can see this book being very popular across the entire primary school... this well produced book, with its striking cover and adorable end papers, is a good addition to any primary school library and many a classroom book corner." -- Books For Topics
Praise for the Young Zoologist series:
"What makes this series stand out is that the illustrations, bite-sized facts, and clear labels make it easy for the youngest of readers to navigate the text and absorb the information there." -- Booklist
"The well-illustrated Young Zoologist series guides readers through the lives and notable features of the spotlighted animals... prepares the young zoologist (aka the reader) for their upcoming adventure in the field, laying out tools necessary for investigating the animal. The bright, semi-realistic artwork could hold these titles on its own, but the easily digestible facts regarding life cycle, behavior, and conservation make the volumes well rounded. Each work is pragmatic in addressing the challenges these creatures face while helping aspiring zoologists learn ways to protect animals and their environments." --Booklist
