    2. The first person narrative and the sharp, colorful photographs give the reader a “you are there” experience. The four brief chapters and occasional sidebars are filled with information about the species’ habits, habitats, similarities and differences with other big cats, and issues leading to their possible extinction. Even the back matter is well done . . (taken from my review for CLCD)

    3. This is part of a Nat Geo series. I would love to add this collection to my class library. Perfect for my third graders. Lots of features that support reading longer non-fiction - chapter headings, beautiful photographs and captions, maps, glossary, etc.

    4. Very informative nonfiction book on leopards. The photographs are amazing! And, I learned how to tell the difference between leopards, cheetahs, and jaguars. I like the narrative format while still including interesting facts about hunting, survival, and growing up.

    5. Good souce for homework on leopards. Plenty of pictures, good text and includes sources for more information.
