MRS. HARKNESS AND THE PANDA by Alicia Potter
Fantastic non-fiction book about the discovery of the panda bear! Mr. Harness was exploring in China, looking for signs of the panda, an animal thought to be mythical. When he died on his exploration, his wife decided to take up the search, even though women were not explorers in those days. She was eventually successful, and brought the first panda to the United States.
Such a great story! Cute animals, inspiring love, and a great example for girls and boys about pursuing your passions and your dreams.
