Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jodell Sadler
Young readers will delight in this visual and engaging title that compares a cheetah and a leopard. Readers will learn how to identify both visually and by behaviors. Which one leaps the length of a basketball court and which one runs as fast as a car on a highway? Readers will discover the answers to these questions and more. Which one is built for speed, and which is built for power? Which one plays hide-and-seek? Which one hunts during the day, which one hunts at night, and which one carries its prey up into a tree? Which one, when on the prowl, is the faster hunter? The main thrust of this nonfiction title is the use of a question to pull the reader through this title: "Can you tell these look-a-likes apart?" Special sections: "Who am I? Fun Facts, Glossary," and "Further Reading" allow excited readers to test their learning or log online to learn even more. Reviewer: Jodell Sadler

Meet the Author

Buffy Silverman is the author of many books about nature and science for children. She also enjoys writing poetry for children. Buffy is lucky to live in a rural area of Michigan where inspiration is just outside the window. The sun shimmers on Stony Lake. A great blue heron flies low over the swamp. Black squirrels scamper across oak branches, stuffing leaves in their mouths and bringing them to a hollow. The animals that share her yard inspire stories and poems. With every book and article she writes, she learns more about the world.
