Summary

Summary

We all recognize an elephant or a bear when we see one. But how much do we really know about these incredible animals? This lively series takes young readers to the heart of the jungle, across the plains and out to sea to explore the lives of these wildlife stars. Each volume examines the anatomy and special skills of its subject as well as its habitats, diets and hunting strategies. Remarkable insights into family and social interactions and compelling discussions about the often precarious future faced by each animal round out each volume. Written with flair, each easy-to-read title includes a variety of fact boxes and sidebars containing fascinating observations and fun trivia.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-5-Two attractive titles about big cats. Accompanied by handsome color photos (including many close-up shots and at least one per double-page spread), information boxes, and a global-location map, the readable, brief texts provide some basic data regarding size, habits, diet, mating, and life spans of these creatures. If you already own such standards as Ruth Ashby's Tigers (Atheneum, 1990; o.p.), Lesley DuTemple's Tigers (Lerner, 1996), Caroline Arnold's Lion (Morrow, 1995), Kathy Darling's Lions (Carolrhoda, 2000), or Seymour Simon's Big Cats (HarperCollins, 1991) you may not need these volumes, but they are fresh and eye-catching and will interest animal lovers and report writers.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
