Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lisa Colozza Cocca
Part of the nonfiction series, "Big Cats," this title highlights jaguars. The cover photograph and the blurb that describes the stealthy behavior of the jaguar will draw in even the most reluctant reader. Divided into five chapters, the text covers the physical characteristics, hunting habits, daily life, family life, and conservation of jaguars. Readers learn how to distinguish a jaguar from a leopard, why jaguars enjoy the water, and the different roles the mothers and fathers play in raising their young. 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 jaguars live in the wild. 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 jaguars. The combination of engaging text and photographs will keep this title in demand. Reviewer: Lisa Colozza Cocca
