Unwrapping Some Wonderful Illustrations for You 

The Book 

This is a very important educational book to read to kids to get them to understand how precious animals from all different parts of the world are to us.   Many of these amazing creatures are becoming extinct because of human mismanagement like destroying the animals habitats for example.  This book shines a beacon of light upon the animals found : in the dry savanna, the coral reef, the Arctic,  the evergreen forest, the open ocean and the tropical forest.  

It details the animals homes and how they adapt to their lives where they live.  It is also a wonderful awakening to the readers as to why we need to love these animals more than ever before before they are gone forever and we are unable to do so.  

The author cites 50 reasons why we should care and what we can do to help these creatures survive so we can enjoy them for many, many years to come.  "50 Reasons to Love Animals" would be a lovely addition to a classroom or elementary school library.  I highly recommend this book.
