Paige Jaeger is an educator, librarian, and professional developer who has worked at both the elementary and secondary levels. She is the author of three books on Inquiry-Based Learning and sits on the Advisory Board of School Library Connection magazine. Paige has a passion to get students thinking-wondering-investigating and using new vocabulary acquired in the process. This book was written after watching students research endangered animals and being so surprised---as though they'd never heard of poaching and other travesties causing the "disappearance." There wasn't anyone else she wanted but her good friend, Carol Hill Quirk, to illustrate this book inspiring students to be kind to animals and make a difference. Paige and her husband live in northern New York where they raised their family to love the great outdoors.
