Comments about National Geographic Kids Mission: Wolf Rescue:
My children and I volunteer with a wolf preserve. I bought this book for them, but have found myself reading it too. This book provides a wonderful collection of real wolf biologies, information about those who work in the field to promote conservation, and information about wolves in today's world. I highly recommend it for anyone who is interested in reading about wolves, especially for those who would like to learn about how to help save and protect them.
