For the hobby naturalists and carnivore fanatics, this book is an observation of not only pumas, but about the importance of biodiversity. Pumas are deeply fascinating and misunderstood creatures, that all of us should understand that carnivores (especially pumas/mountain lions/panthers) are a necessity to our changing environment – they keep things in balance and provide for big and small creatures alike. By the end of the book, the term “everything is connected” becomes apparent.
My favorite children's books are the ones that hold both playfulness and a comforting wisdom, and this short series can be described as such. The art is lovely and inviting, and the story and characters will draw you in. Kids and adults alike will be charmed and touched.
George Takei was a child when Executive Order 9066 was issued and his family was forced, along with 70,000 other American citizens into incarceration camps. Haunting, beautiful, and factual, this graphic novel memoir highlights a time period often left in the dark by history.
