Let’s interview some endangered wildlife, and see what they have to say about the situation. While supermarkets wrongly claim that the Round Table on Sustainable Palm Oil is enough and logging companies defend their ways and toilet paper companies tear down Boreal forests, no-body thinks to ask the animals what they think of climate change, rainforest beef and soy, and other situations that affect them.
Interview with a Tiger (and other clawed beasts) is a great book to introduce children to the wildlife kingdom. If you could talk to animals, what would you ask? This book takes the form of illustrated interviews to a tiger, wolf, ant-eater, honey badger and more. For instance:
I eat 15 kilograms in one go. Wolf it down! You can’t waste food as a predator. It may be ages until you catch something again, especially during winter. We can’t order online like you!
What is the Polar bear’s dream? To be as fat as possible! But as the sea ice melts, I have to go onto land and find titchy scraps like birds’ eggs and seaweed. Have you ever met a penguin? (a what? – they live on opposite ends of the earth!)
Get familiar with 10 fierce and furry beasts, as they step up to the mic, and share their habits, behaviour, likes and dislikes and favourite foods. Each animal has its own story to tell, and its own attitude.
Bite-sized text in a question-answer format is paired with colourful engaging illustrations, perfect for reluctant readers. Other animals ‘interviewed’ include a giant armadillo, lion, jaguar, snow leopard, polar bear and three-toed sloth. Plus there are tips to help endangered species, and their habitat.
How to Talk to a Tiger (and other animals) is a fun book, to share unique ways of communicating between 50 animals. With humorous text, discover deer that sneeze to say ‘hello’, bees that waggle their tums and fish that break wind! As with any book like this, learning about the wildlife we share our planet with, will help us be inspired to protect.
