Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Full of engaging and intense photos of ferocious animals seizing their prey, their mouths wide open displaying sharp teeth, the book will fascinate readers and nonreaders alike." —Library Media Connection
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
National Geographic, like others who publish early readers, has made it easy for kids who want to learn more, earn prizes, play games, watch videos and take quizzes by linking to the Internet. For those who have smartphones (presumably parents of the young audience), there is even a code on the back cover to scan to activate a video. The dear parents note reminds them that kids are curious and want to know about the world around them. Reading leads to vocabulary development and triggers a thirst for learning. In this Level 2 reader, kids learn about the major predators around the world. The cover is a bit scary’ but when turning the pages, readers see a not so scary grizzly bear catching fish. Wolves are also dangerous predators and so are their relatives—foxes, coyotes, and African wild dogs. Thirty-six kinds of cats live in the wild and while many of us are familiar with the big ones—lions, tigers, cheetahs, cougars, panthers—the rusty spotted cat from India was a new one for this reviewer. Also an animal does not have to be big to be deadly—wind scorpions, giant water bugs, and army ants are examples of small but still mighty predators. Since this is a “National Geographic Readers” series publication, the quality of the colorful pictures is outstanding. The book is chock full of facts, silly jokes and definitions of difficult words. It ends with a quiz to see what readers have retained from the text, plus a picture glossary. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot; Ages 4 to 6.
