As a Title I Environmental Science educator, one of the most innate challenges I’ve encountered as a teacher is finding meaningful texts to supplement my visual learners. Eldritch Animals’ streamlined approach to telling the tales of our most threatened species not only engages but excites my 9th-grade students. Mara allows me the space to use her text as a jumping point for growth in my endangered species lessons and she allows my students a space to gain visual context in a truly beautiful way. There’s nothing quite like seeing the information I teach brought to life in a way that my students cling to. Cheers to Eldritch Animals!

I greatly enjoyed the tone, message, illustrations and animals highlighted. I think it would be an attractive nonfiction title for upper elementary through middle school age.
