This is a darling book to read to your darling....
Title: Panda Kindergarten
Author: Joanne Ryder
School is in session! But this is no ordinary kindergarten class. Say hello to sixteen young giant panda cubs residing at the China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda at the Wolong Nature Preserve. The cubs are raised together from infancy in a protected setting, where they grow strong. The scientists and workers watch as the cubs learn skills that will help prepare them to be released into the wild.
Dr. Katherine Feng, who is a leading photographer, documents a day in the life of the cubs with Joanne Ryder’s spare and simple text and full-color photographs.
These adorable cubs have enamored people around the globe. We are truly thankful to the dedicated staff and unique resources at Wolong. This threatened species now has a second chance. A true story of their incredible journey toward hope and survival. I am positive that you too will love the spirit of this book. Read on.
