Big Cats - Reviewed by School Library Journals

Appealing photographs and basic facts introduce well-known wild cats. Short and simple sentences make the text accessible to new readers: “Jaguars are big cats. Their fur is tan. They have dark spots” (Jaguars). Question-and-answer sequences and interjections such as “Neat!” and “Wow!” add a slightly playful tone. Most photos show the felines in their natural habitats, sometimes interacting with prey. Nicely varied images effectively support ­information about basic physical traits and behaviors. Lions, for ­example, includes clear and engaging views of the animals hunting, playing, fighting, and resting in trees. Occasional close-up photos of key features such as a tiger’s claw (Tigers) and endearing views of cubs at play add to the visual appeal. VERDICT Fine choices for new readers and younger browsers.
