Summary:

Travel through the eyes of living creatures spread throughout the four-corners of the Earth.  Each one is so unique to its location, and its beauty is captured through photographer, Joel Sartore’s lens.  Sartore is a world-renowned photographer, who started his journey to document all the creatures of the world in the National Geographic Best Seller, The Photo Ark.  Paired with the stylish voice of Newbery Medal-winning, Kwame Alexander, young readers are called to protect the endangered species that hop, slither, creep and crawl across the pages.  Each creature plays a critical role in their respective ecosystems, and it is our job to help.
