Some of the most interesting books I've read recently are a part of the Scientists in the Field series.
One such book is Kakapo Rescue: Saving the World's Strangest Parrot about a species of bird that is nearly extinct. There are only 122 kakapo in the world, but scientists and volunteers are working hard to make sure that this number continues to grow. You can learn more about their efforts at the Kakapo Recovery Program website.
After you've read the book, let us know what you thought of it on the ACPL Mock Sibert blog.
