An in-depth look at endangered species.

Did you know that a Galapagos tortoise can live to be 200 years old if nothing harms it? And yet, the Galapagos tortoise is an endangered species. Learning about endangered species is the first step toward saving them. Will We Miss Them? introduces children to the fascinating lives and challenges of endangered species from the unique perspective of an eleven-year-old author. Realistic color illustrations enhance the engaging text.
