The "Benchmark Rebus" collection is designed to ease the way for early readers. Young hands can easily hold these small format books. The book begins with twelve words, and the photographs that will be substituted for these words in the following text. The photographs are clear and easy to understand. A lioness is hiding in the tall grass. She is a hunter and is watching zebras hoping to have one for her dinner. She chases a zebra but it gets away. She goes back to her pride. Each sentence includes at least one, and generally two, photographs in the place of words. The scale of the photographs is compatible with the size of the text. A large photograph on the opposite page illustrates the story. Two hyenas approach, but are scared away by the lion's roar. The baby cubs play with each other and their dad. Four words are defined at the end of the story, as well as providing references for other books and websites about lions.
