Booklist Review

Gr. 3^-5. The new series Natural World offers insights into the habitats, life cycles, food chains, and enemies of various animals. Both Lion and Tiger begin with a clear drawing of the animal, with some of its parts labeled. The books then go into detail about how the animals live. The writing, especially in Tiger, is clear and lively. Tiger also has pictures that are more effectively cropped than those in the other volume. Still, the color photographs in both books demand attention, and children who read both will be interested to see just how different these similar animals actually are. A final section in each book advises kids how they can help save these endangered species. Appealing and interesting fare. Glossary, short bibliography, a few Web sites. See the Series Roundup, this issue, for two other animal books. --Ilene Cooper
