" I liked this book but it grosses me out so i wouldn't recommend it. " said.

"This book is about Emi the Sumatran rhino and one zoologist's mission to breed her. Sumatran rhinos are very endangered and a baby hadn't been born in captivity for over 100 years. When Emi finally mated with a male Sumatran rhino, her first several pregnancies ended in miscarriage, but rhino scientist Terri Roth was determined to succeed at helping Emi carry a baby to full term.

The book includes lots of information about the different species of rhinos and their status as endangered species. Color photos are present on every page. Profiles of each of the five species of rhino can be found at the end of the book as well as resources for more information and how to help rhinos. I've enjoyed one other book in the Scientists in the Field series and look forward to reading more!

"Our school welcomed Mary Kay Carson today. She shared with us many of her books, and how she went about researching her information to create her books. As a Cincinnatian, she spoke of her love of our zoo and how an early internship there shaped her love of science and animals. As an author, later in her life, it was interesting to hear how much she valued the experience of being able to revisit the zoo as a researcher and study the Sumatran Rhinos. This has a good story, and a positive lesson for young students on how to create a background for such a nonfiction book. This was explained to be her favorite book she has written due to the connection with Cincinnati, the material, and being at the zoo again. We enjoyed this story and the collection of photographs shared as the highlight of her presentation to us. " said.

" I looked up Emi on the internet and was sad to see she had died in 2009. This book was an amazing story of her life and full of information about rhinos. " said.

" Cute book. Lots of info about Sumatran Rhinos and helping endangered species. " said.

" the book was good and one of the really cool facts is that a good rhino horn can be worth 50K! " said.

" This clear, well-written book is full of fascinating information about rhinos and scientists. It's not only educational but fun, too, and the photos are great! This is a great book for parents and children to share at home and for teachers to use in school. " said.

" As always, the Scientists in the Field series provides a fascinating look into the work of scientists - this time, people working with captive Sumatran rhinos. Real-world applications of scientific principles (much more exciting than dry science textbooks) and great photos make the book compelling. Like the others, this book is wordier than many animal books, but the information is mixed in with a narrative that makes the book engaging, and I'd recommend it for fourth grade and up. " said.
