Comments for Through Endangered Eyes

Through Endangered EyesThrough Endangered Eyes: 05/22/09

Rachel Allen Dillon's book Through Endangered Eyes combines poetry and beautiful acrylic illustrations to teach children about different endangered species. When the book first arrived for review my son snatched up the book and immediately sat down to read it. He has since read it a number of times to himself and to his sister. He has probably read it more thoroughly than I have.

Since the book is aimed at children my son's age, I consider his enthusiasm for it the best review possible. Except for some of the animal names, the poems use words that he can easily read to teach basic concepts about the different animals. The colorful illustrations get him (and his sister) excited and eager to learn something new about a animal.

At the back of the book there is more detailed information for each species. These sections are perfect for me to read with my children. Dillon also includes links to sites for even further reading. Through Endangered Eyes will continue to be a cherished read in our family for the foreseeable future.

To learn more about the author, check out her website and blog. See all the illustrations (and maybe buy one!) too.
