Children's Literature - Marilyn CourtotTigers are the biggest of all cats. Unlike pet cats, tigers like to swim and are dependent on water to cool off in the hot weather. Each tiger has its own territory within a tiger habitat, and a tiger's roar can be heard for two miles. Tiger cubs are born blind and live with their mothers for two years. These and other interesting facts about tigers are accompanied by many wonderful photographs. This book is one of a series of "Early Bird Nature Books."
School Library JournalGr 2-4An engaging topic, simple vocabulary, and repetitive language result in a treat for beginning readers. Children seeking information on the biggest of all cats will find basic physical and behavioral facts and an explanation of the tiger's endangered status. Crisp, full-color photographs with informative captions on every page will draw even the newest readers. The excellent adult note that appears in all "Early Bird Nature Books" will help adults encourage reading and offers opportunities for extending the learning experience. A high-quality addition to any collection.Susan Oliver, Hillsborough County Science Library at MOSI, Tampa, FL
