There might be two hundred million different types of living things on our planet - and some are in danger of becoming extinct.
Find out about some that we have lost forever, and some that are in great danger.
Animals such as the blue whale, the black rhino and the great white shark.
Why is it happening, and what can we do about it? Then read Bill and Ben's story - a true story about how sometimes it is very hard to do the right thing to help endangered animals survive.
Endangered Animals is part of the Trailblazers series, published by Ransom Publishing.
It is ideal for older children and young adults with a reading age of 5 - 8.
The books are suitable for general reading or as part of a more structured reading programme.
Each book is on a strong, popular topic, with a colourful, attractive layout, combining fact and fiction.
Each book has a non fiction and a fiction section. The fiction story appears in two formats - one with simple texts for poor readers; the facing pages contain an illustrated "speech bubble" version of the same story, for those who are just starting to learn to read. These two levels of entry give access points for children and young adults with different reading ages.
The vocabulary of each book is carefully limited, with simple sentences to reinforce reading skills, which make the books suitable for even the poorest readers.
