When it comes to being kind to animals, endangered species need our consideration more than any other.
As of April 6th, 2023, There are now a total of 41,415 species on the IUCN Red List, and 16,306 of them are endangered species threatened with extinction.
My first middle-grade novel, first of a series of four books, Peter Little Wing, focuses on a number of endangered species that are endemic to New Zealand, including Peter, Southern Fiordland tokoeka kiwi, Tim, a tuatara, and Rangi, a kea.
Middle-grade children are very much more aware of the impact of endangered species on their ecosystems and the planet as a whole. It is a part of most school curriculums at this point in their lives, and the World Wildlife Fund has teaching resources available on this topic (https://www.worldwildlife.org/teaching-resources).
Purchase this first edition of Peter Little Wing for your children, your nieces and nephews, your grandchildren, and friends with kids. Help the children in your life develop their empathy for animals, and foster their awareness of the plight of endangered species in Aotearoa, and all over the world.
