Praise for Kingfisher Knowledge: Endangered Planet
Kingfisher Knowledge: Endangered Planet offers a positive vision of the future. The book's emphasis on the interconnectedness of all life on Earth will help students appreciate their responsibilities toward the planet. . . . This could be a good springboard for cross-campus, cross-curricular “real-life” units of study.
