Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
More like a picture book, this smaller format book has a full page picture opposite a page of text. The focus is big cats, and the book is part of the "Animals After Dark" series. It also opens with a glossary or word-to-know section instead of putting them at the end of the book. Kids who read this page first will certainly get more out of the following text. Big cats for the most part are endangered; they generally are distinguished from other cats by their ability to roar and their size. They are also carnivores and most have the ability to swim and climb trees. They spend most of the day sleeping and then hunt at night. They have better eyesight and hearing ability than humans, and their whiskers also serve as feelers, all of which contributes to making them successful hunters at night. The information is basic but when combined with the pictures, it is enough to introduce young readers to these predators. For those who want to know more, there is a page at the end of the book that references a few books and some web sites. This short text also has an index and a table of contents which can help young readers starting to write reports better understand the layout of a reference book.
