CriticasGr 2-4-Young readers will enjoy these interesting books on wild cats. All three contain information on the special characteristics of each animal, their social lives, hunting, reproduction, and, most important, their relation to humans. This section mainly serves as a consciousness-raising tool. The series emphasizes how these animals are endangered and reaffirms the importance of preserving them. The books have all the structural elements that elementary students need in writing reports, and are filled with appealing full-color photos that will attract browsers. As a whole, this trio of books is a solid addition for libraries and bookstores.
