Disappearing Acts is a beautifully illustrated search-and-find book. Each page features a densely detailed lanscape; rainforest, mountains, coral reef, freshwater, etc. Within these landscapes are hiding threatened species ranging from the numbat to the snow leopard, and children are invited to search the picture to find each one. Alongside each illustration run descriptions of the animals, their numbers, their habitats and why they are endangered. At the back of the book, a glossary of animals breaks down the details of each species and why it is endangered. A delightful way to learn about our beautiful planet and the rich bio-diversity that inhabits it.

Reviews for Disappearing Acts: A Search-and-Find Book of Endangered Animals

PreS-Gr 2-This lavishly illustrated work offers students the opportunity to search for animals hidden within their natural habitats. Each spread features a particular biome, from deserts and mountains to rain forests. A variety of creatures flood each spread, including several that are in danger of becoming extinct. Children are encouraged to search for the threatened species hidden among nonendangered ones. The searches do range in difficulty, with some more challenging than others. Back matter contains information regarding the location and status of each endangered animal, the reason for it being threatened, and the population known to be remaining. Often these numbers are distressingly small. It may be tough for young children to fully comprehend the ramifications of extinction, but this will help introduce them to the concept of habitats as well as the importance of a balanced ecosystem. VERDICT The interactive nature of this work makes it best suited for a guided group exercise or shared one-on-one with a child.
