Over the years I’ve had my fair share of favorite animals. For a few years I researched everything about wolves that I could possibly find, then I switched to elephants and after that I, quite suddenly, decided that sloths were an animal that were especially awesome. I remember that at one point during my childhood I was even fascinated with Tigers, a recollection that made me all the more excited to work with National Geographic to review their book, Mission: The Tiger Rescue.
Mission: The Tiger Rescue will help inspire your young animal lover to get up close with tigers and the real life challenges they face on a day to day basis in the wild. The book features a compelling narrative that combines fun and amazing adventure stories, amazing photography, hands-on activities, fascinating information and more. It connects the reader with in-depth information about the animal’s real world and their experiences within it. Young readers will enjoy being able to meet real-life tigers while also learning about their habitats, challenges and successes. Additionally, they’ll also learn how they can take action and help save the tigers, who are now on the endangered species list!
Written by lifelong animal lover, Kitson Jazynka, and Daniel Raven-Ellison, Mission: The Tiger Rescue reflects that love for animals in it’s 112 pages. Kitson is also an award winning freelance writer and children’s author. Works that Kitson has contributed to include National Geographic Kids, American Girl, Horse Illustrated, and the Washington Post.
