This engaging NSTA/CBC Outstanding Science Trade Book relates the nurture, diet, and environment in which a baby panda develops. Deftly created watercolor illustrations are perfectly matched to the factually accurate, lyrical poetry. Nonfiction "fact boxes" on each double page further enhance the content.

Using the natural fascination generated by this endangered animal to capture the imagination of young readers, this book can become a great tool to introduce content about panda adaptations and habitat. Because of the poetic nature of the text, it is a pleasure to share with an entire class. It can then reread for individual enrichment or center work. An index helps students go back again to their favorite facts or passages.
