Booklist Review

With an engaging, scrapbook-style layout and an urgent message, these entries in the Last Chance to Save series will have no trouble grabbing readers' attention. Bold, well-designed spreads feature the flora, fauna, and locales of planet Earth that are in danger of disappearing. Corporate greed is again at the forefront in Endangered Places, which examines the substantial effect that climate change is having on some of the most unique and, often, attractive to tourists places in the world. Each photo-illustrated spread contains fast facts about the species, group, or location; what threatens their existence; and steps that are being taken to save them. Brief notes on conservation and humanitarian groups will spur further reading, and a final map helps contextualize. A good starting point for young activists.--Reagan, Maggie Copyright 2010 Booklist
