OUR VANISHING FARM ANIMALS

Saving America's Rare Breeds
Age Range: 5 & up

KIRKUS REVIEW

 In attractive color photos from various sources and with a straightforward text that has enough information to stir up interest and concern, portraits of eight endangered domestic animals as they are being conserved on farms around the US: the Dutch Belted cow, the four-horned Navajo-Churro sheep, Ancona chickens, the American Bashkir curly horse, etc. A concluding list of 84 endangered breeds gives pause with such familiar names as Rhode Island Reds and Percherons. Good, thought-provoking reporting. (Nonfiction. 5+)
