SPECIES ON THE EDGE is a great reference for anyone with a casual or scholarly interest in endangered species. The species of the day and the beautiful photos help engage users, and the "threat thermometer" helps move people past the standard "endangered vs. extinct" categories. For kids willing to dig, there's also some interesting information about the importance of species and the purpose of the IUCN Red List. So, if you're already interested and involved and just looking for an encyclopedia to give you more knowledge and exposure, this is a great one. If you're looking for more interactivity and ideas about what you can do to get involved, though, this won't suit.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
