Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lisa Colozza Cocca
This title in the nonfiction series, "Big Cats," focuses on cheetahs. Divided into five chapters, the text covers the physical characteristics, hunting habits, senses, family life, and conservation of cheetahs. Big cat facts, such as cheetahs being the only one of the big cats that purrs, are interspersed throughout the book and help draw even reluctant readers into the body of the text. The weight and length of the text is appropriate for the intended age group and is broken into manageable sections with sidebars and photographs. The book includes a world map showing where cheetahs live in the wild and a timeline covering the early history of the cheetah. Features include a table of contents, a glossary, an index, a link to the Fact Hound website, and a list of books where readers can find further information about cheetahs. The book, a great blend of clear text and sharp photographs, will be popular among animal book readers. Reviewer: Lisa Colozza Cocca
