Praise for My Life in the Wild: Cheetah
“Personal in their stories, the texts present a lively look at the creatures from birth to parenthood. Each book is chock-full of large, realistic illustrations that keep pace with the simple narratives.. . . Focusing on popular animals, these eye-catching and approachable volumes will appeal to children reading on their own, to classroom teachers, and to homeschoolers.” —School Library Journal
“The illustrations that accompany the text are so realistic they almost seem like photographs. . . . With careful choices of how they show the hunt, the book also manages to be realistic about hunting without drifting into blood and gore. The text is short and simple, and because it's told in the first person brings a personal feeling to the story. . . . I'm sure many teachers will look forward to collecting this entire series.” —Tulsa Book Review
“High-quality book . . . and you can feel the caliber starting with [it's] well-crafted covers. . . . Written for the beginning readers, with large illustrations full of color and texture. This book would be great to accompany a trip to the zoo or a unit on life cycles.” —Wrapped in Foil Blog
