This is a documentary story of baby/young Pandas being born and raised in the Wolong Natural Reserve in China. We get a glimpse into the lives of young pandas, how they are cared for, what they eat, and how they play. It includes wonderful photographs of the pandas.
Wonderful photographs add to this easy reader that is informational and interesting.
This was one of my son’s favorite books to read. He LOVES learning about animals and pandas are very distinctive animals, and have earned a place in his heart because of this book.
I liked this book because there was so much information about Pandas without being overly technical or overly "dumbed down." The pictures are fun, and the subject matter is close to the hearts of a young boy about to enter kindergarten himself. This is well-written prose.
This nonfiction picture book uses an easy reader style to teach kids about pandas.
You'll learn all about pandas and protecting wildlife, particularly threatened species. The story is written in such a way that you can draw out the nonfiction text and use it for science: What do pandas eat? Where do pandas live?
