Release Date: April 10, 2014
Publisher: Heinemann Raintree

This children's book in Heinemann Raintree's "First Library" series is recommended for pupils in kindergarten through grade three. The publisher describes the book thusly:
This book introduces readers to a range of endangered animals found in Africa. Readers learn basic facts about each animal, and also why the animal’s habitat is threatened. The book also considers what people can do to help, both at an international level and at the level of the readers themselves. Habitat maps, fact boxes, labels, and captions all combine to aid understanding.

Richard and Louise Spilsbury are also the authors of Plant Parts (2008), Animals in Danger in Asia (2014), and Atoms and Molecules (2007).
