Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This entry in the "Animals of the Rainforest" series includes information about how jaguars survive in the rainforests of Mexico, and Central, and South America. The largest cat living in the area, it is variously colored but known for its distinctive rosette markings as well as size of its paws and teeth. Text differentiates this cat but also depicts its cat-family behaviors as well, such as night hunting and retractable claws. In addition to the animal's life cycle, the book also discusses unique features, such as its revered and respected status among the native population. Research is further supported by a glossary, well selected and vibrantly colored photographs but with modest mostly descriptive rather than informative captions, an index, a few internet sites, and useful addresses to which to write. 2001, Steck-Vaughn,
