Discover some of the most fascinating animals in the world with the Nature's Children series. Readers will discover how these creatures survive in the wild, how they raise their young, and how they are related to other species. Each title also raises important ideas about conservation by examining the animal's current status and explaining the ways humans have affected it throughout the years.
