Children's LiteratureAGERANGE: Ages 11 up.
Statistics, maps, a plethora of facts, quoted information from scientific experts, web pages, and fantastic photos fill the pages of this book with all one could need to complete a report about the endangered jaguars. The publisher guarantees to keep web information up to date for five years from the book's publication date. The book is one of the "Saving Endangered Species" series. The text consists of seven chapters, including ones that have information about encounters with the big cats, jaguar behavior, and today's efforts to protect the cats. A specific page at the book's end explains the Endangered and Threatened Wildlife List and tells how to access the list using the web. Thirty useful sites are named at the back of the book. In addition, a glossary, chapter notes, and a thorough index are included. The text and accessibility of web sites offer an easy opportunity to work on reports without needing to gather many hardcopy sources. This book is a must have in classrooms for students ages 11 and up when they are expected to gather pertinent report information. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury
