Endangered Birds

Informational (nonfiction), 545 words, Level M (Grade 2)
Endangered Birds is an informational book about birds that either are extinct or are in danger of becoming extinct. Readers will see photographs of the great auk, which has become extinct, and other birds, such as the kakapo and California condor, which are being bred and protected because their numbers are so few. Readers are gently reminded that human activity is the reason most birds are endangered; yet humans are the ones working to save the birds from extinction.
