This hands-on first look at endangered animals has so much to offer in a simple, bold, yet very creative format. Striking photographs of birds, mammals, reptiles, and aquatic creatures fill each page of six board books for little hands. Short, first person text pulls young listeners into the natural world and offers interesting facts about habitat, diet, and features of each animal. The six books are die cut puzzle shapes that fit together to form a sturdy, decorative cube. Placed on a table or nightstand, it acts as a reminder to revisit the animals within. The books also fit together to form a flat panel montage of the creatures in their environments. The Cube Bookis a tactile way to engage young children and hold their attention while instilling the importance of safeguarding the world’s glorious array of wildlife. A total of thirty-six beautiful portraits from the giant panda to the colorful clown fish take us to the rain forests, grasslands, wetlands, deserts, oceans, and polar regions of the planet. Six ten-page board books, two types of puzzles, an ornament, and just the right amount of information make this a value-packed gift to awaken curiosity.
