Tigers (Amazing Animals Series)by Valerie Bodden
From fleet-footed cheetahs to howling wolves, and from playful dolphins to earth-shaking elephants, the world of animals is wonderfully diverse. This popular and newly expanded series continues traveling the planet to study these and other fascinating animals. Beautiful photos are paired with accessible text to examine the featured animal's appearance, behaviors, and life cycle. Each book also presents a folk story that helps explain a defining feature or behavior.
The animals covered in these titles are certainly impressive and interesting, but nowhere does the author make a case for them being "amazing." Simple, uncluttered spreads consist of a few sentences of large text against white space opposite a full-page, captioned color photograph. Glossary terms are highlighted within the narrative and defined at the foot of the page. A brief list of text and online sources, as well as a simple index, are included, which makes these books suitable for beginning reports. The inclusion of a relevant folk tale at the end of each title is a welcome touch, but the stories are unsourced. Simple text and oversize pictures make this a suitable series for emerging readers to tackle on their own, or for sharing in a classroom setting.
