As we are overwhelmed with the news that there are more and more endangered animals in the world I wonder if we really know what they look like or how we can help them?
Who Am I? created by Tim Flach is a creative book that allows children to explore the world of endangered animals.
Each animal is described in easy to understand ‘who am I’ style clues alongside peek through pages that reveal parts of the animal.
Something that makes this book unique is the photography. Each animal has been exquisitely photographed either in sanctuaries or the wild and the eyes of each animal are hard to miss.
Some of these animals appear in a human like portrait style, bringing about more feeling to who these animals are and why we need to start to care more about them.
Tim Flach is a master photographer and author, capturing young children’s minds and hearts through curious clues and magical photography. At the end of the book there is also more information about each animal, where they live and how some humans are trying to raise them from the status of endangered.
This book has also been made in collaboration with Blackwell and Ruth, who have contributed over $5 million to non-profit organisations dedicated to social issues.
