Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Young readers with an interest in tigers will find this book enjoyable. Part of the "Animals I See at the Zoo" series, the text spotlights how tigers have adapted to different environments and how their senses help them hunt and survive. For example, did you know that no two tigers have the same stripes? And that tigers are excellent hunters that make no noise when they walk and can see very well in the dark of night? Written for beginning readers, children will find themselves drawn in by the engaging facts and wonderfully realistic photographs. One photograph, in which the whiskers of the tiger are labeled, allows beginner nonfiction readers to match the text with a visual aid. Reference information at the end of the book is also helpful, including a glossary that defines words such as "twitch" and "whiskers," and an index. Suggested books and websites are also found at the end. 2002, Weekly Reader Early Learning Library,

K-Gr 2-Featuring an attractive format that makes excellent use of white space, each of these books consists of spreads of one to three large-font sentences facing a full-page, full-color photograph. The texts and sharp pictures lend themselves to open discussion between children and adults. Match these titles with books like those by Lynn Stone and Bill Ivy for beginning readers who want to know more about these animals.-Cathie Bashaw Morton, Somers Library, NY
