Children's LiteratureThis title in the "True Books" series from Children's Press/Scholastic is both well written and well researched by its author, who has a Ph.D. in animal behavior and has written many books about animals and natural-science topics. It also has the advantage of having been reviewed prior to publication by both a reading consultant and a content consultant. So, not only is the information up-to-date with current scientific studies, but is also written in a manner that will be easily read and absorbed by early-elementary school- aged children. Another plus is the dramatic, full-color photography of bobcats in natural settings doing what bobcats do: stalking, leaping, pouncing, climbing, runningand then snoozing on a tree branch after all that activity. Topics include the wide range of habitats in which bobcats can be found, and modern-day threats to the continuation of the species. A glossary, resource directory, and a subject index can be found at the back of the sturdy, hardcover book. Kids will enjoy reading about this beautiful wild cat. Teachers, parents and librarians will enjoy having this great resource on the book shelf for young readers to discover. 2005, Children's Press/Scholastic, Ages 6 to 8.
