Leopards: Spotted Hunters

Leopards: Spotted Hunters

by Lola M. Schaefer

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This entry in Bridgestone's "The Wild World of Animals" series introduces young readers to the leopard. The short one-page "chapters" treat such topics as the leopard's classification as a mammal, habitat, diet, mating and birth, leopard cubs, climbing prowess, and interactions with predators, including humans. Brief text on each right-hand page is paired with a full-page, full-color photo on the left-hand page. Some pages include definitions of new words ("mate" means "to join together to produce young") or offer "fun facts," such as "Leopards have a rough tongue. They use their tongue to remove the hair from an animal before they eat it. Leopards also use their tongue to lick off the meat left on the animal's bones." The book, which includes a glossary, bibliography, guide to Internet sites and index, also offers a concluding hands-on activity to create as many different combinations of spots as possible on a leopard's face. 2002, Capstone/Bridgestone Press, $18.60. Ages 4 to 8. Reviewer: Claudia Mills AGES: 4 5 6 7 8
