He looks around him and sees others who are also the last one of their kind--giraffe, monkey, bear, and bird. After finishing the story, there is information about the real Sudan to read at the back of the book.

In this story, we see the life of a male white rhino through his eyes--what he remembers about his home, others in his herd, his mother and her death, and the day he was brought in a “box” into captivity. Young readers, though, may not even notice the words, and the story works without this extra level of meaning. Northern white rhinos, like their close cousin the southern white rhino, feed exclusively on short grass, which their massive mouths hoover up with the efficiency of a living, breathing lawnmower.In 2022, 448 rhinos were illegally killed, compared to 451 in 2021 in South Africa, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

Your selection was perfect for our children and what really made the difference was your ability to engage with each child, discuss their interests and help them to choose a suitable book based on your extensive knowledge of the books you were selling.We're looking at something that is no longer with us both on an individual level but, more importantly, on a species level," says Pritchard. Illegal poaching, fueled by the increasing demand for keratin-rich rhino horn in traditional medicinal practices, has devastated the African rhino population .

Pacing his enclosure each day, he is haunted by the memories of his past and the constant reminder that he is the last of his kind. Sometimes people's faces are distorted, but I'm not sure if that is just sloppy art, or on purpose as if from an animal's perspective.

Even if we don’t save the northern white rhino, we can save the other threatened rhinos and a host of lesser-known species whose numbers are dwindling everywhere.
