Giant Panda (Young Zoologist)

A First Field Guide to the Bamboo-Loving Bear from China

Head to the mountains of China to study panda bears in this beautiful nonfiction field guide for kids.

You might know that pandas like to snack on bamboo, but there’s so much more to discover about this mysterious black-and-white bear! Turn the pages to discover where pandas like to spend their summers, and how cute they are as newly-born cubs. 

Filled with simple science and plenty of animal facts, this book also explains how poaching and deforestation made pandas an endangered species—and what needs to be done to protect their habitats in the future.

Written by giant panda expert Vanessa Hull, and featuring stunning illustrations by Charlotte Molas, Giant Panda (Young Zoologist) is part of an exciting new series of animal books from Neon Squid aiming to inspire the next generation of biologists and conservationists.
