School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-4-Both of these books cover the basics, such as where the animals live, what they eat, and how they raise their young. Each one also includes conservation efforts, a range map, and a page of random facts. Clear, eye-catching photos (some full-page) nicely complement the text and add visual appeal. The language is somewhat sophisticated and is best suited to kids who read easily on their own. Neither book goes into great detail, but, of the two, Cheetahs is the more successful, perhaps because of its narrower focus (there's only one species of cheetah). Wolves seems a bit more scattered. Most of the book is devoted to the gray wolf, and the red wolf and Ethiopian wolf are discussed only briefly. At times, this can be confusing. For example, in the chapter that discusses where wolves live, the red wolf is described as having been pushed to the south by the gray wolf, but no details are given about its range. Serviceable supplemental material.-Arwen Marshall, Minneapolis Public Library (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
