Children's LiteratureFascinating facts and fabulous photographs combine to make this member of the "Animals I See at the Zoo/Animales que veo en el zoologico" series a definite winner. The simple, bilingual text lets readers know that no two tigers have the same stripes on their fur and that most tigers like to spend their time alone, even when they hunt. Readers will also learn about the excellent hearing and sight abilities of these large cats. Whether a child reads this book alone or has an adult read it aloud, the full-page color photographs will enhance the experience. Included are a variety of tigers from around the world, including those that live in different temperature extremes. A beautiful white tiger with bright blue eyes stares off of one page while another page features a close up of an orange tiger so that readers may have a clear view of the animal's long whiskers. A glossary and index follow the text as does a page of additional resources, including both books and web sites. This book would make a welcome addition to classroom lessons on nature and animals. 2005, Weekly Reader Early Learning Library, Ages 4 to 7.
