Thimmesh explains the work of a Giant Panda conservation project in the Wolong Nature Reserve in China, which uses a three-stage program to create a self-sustaining population in the wild. Complementing her thoughtful, engagingly written text are many arrestingly adorable, colorful photographs of pandas in training and in the wild.
With heart-stopping prose and stunning NASA photographs, Thimmesh celebrates the men and women who solved a series of unfolding crises that threatened the mission of Apollo 11. The animated textlets the reader experience the tension of the mission from multiple vantage points and takes the reader along as an active participant. Personal interviews and oral histories help recreate the immediacy of the event for a new generation.
