With their amazing beauty, strength, and speed, tigers are among the world's most mesmerizing animals. That's why this book, now in paperback for the first time, has become one of the most popular entries in the GET WILD! Series. Designed for children from kindergarten through second grade, it features an appealing and colorful format, with text that's easy and enjoyable to read but also rich in hard science. Each spread begins with the concept "If You Were a Tiger," drawing kids in and making them think about the similarities and differences between humans and these majestic cats. They'll also discover what traits distinguish tigers from their fellow felines, how they raise their cubs, and how they stalk and rush their prey. There are fun and surprising facts, too; for example, just as every person's fingerprints are like no one else's, every tiger has its own unique set of stripes. And unlike housecats, they're excellent swimmers who appreciate a dip in the water on a hot day and can even swim across ponds with ease. Every aspect of the tiger's body is described in detail, and plenty of realistic illustrations show its paws, head, teeth, tongue, tail, and fur. To enhance learning, the text highlights words of special interest and a helpful glossary at the back provides extra information. This is the perfect book for young animal lovers.
