Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan AtteburyBrightly-colored close-up photos offer details of the wild cheetah from Africa. This book from the "African Animals" series offers basic information to emerging readers at a comfortable reading level. Four easy-to-understand sections cover the characteristics, habitats, and life cycles of the fascinating cheetah. Readers will learn that the fastest cat on earth rests on the savanna, blends into the savanna, and looks like it is wearing sunglasses! This last fact is followed up with information that the black rings around the cheetah's eyes and nose protect it from bright sunshine. Readers will learn what a cheetah typically eats and what predators seek out this wild cat. How a cheetah stays safe and protects its cubs is also addressed. A simple glossary and a list of web and book sources follow the main text of the body. As with other books in the series, this one will fit easily into science and geography lessons in the early grade classroom. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury
