KIRKUS REVIEW

Majestic tigers with glowing eyes “burning bright” are the focus of this early reader, part of the respected I Can Read series. Simple but interesting information is effectively conveyed in the text, covering camouflage, prey, life cycle, environment, and endangerment issues. The methods that scientists use to study tigers are clearly explained, with concluding recommendations for ways to sustain and increase the world tiger population, all written in straightforward sentences that first- and second-graders can understand. An author’s note directed to adults provides additional information about tigers and the Wildlife Conservation Society, which provided the stunning photographs that illustrate tiger behavior in this volume. The photos include a snarling tiger on the cover as well as striking shots of tigers sunning, stalking, swimming, striding, and stretching. This well-written volume will be useful for beginning research reports as well as for early reading practice. (Easy reader/nonfiction. 5-8)
