"There are many series about animals' life cycles, but this book in the Wild Animals series is particularly nice. Oversize, with minimal yet informative text and dramatic paintings, the book follows a Bengal tiger mother in India and her three cubs. A striking two-page spread features the mother tiger and cubs facing the audience. The following pages picture the cubs eating and sleeping while their mother hunts for food; learning to prowl and find food on their own; and starting on their own cycle of life. Small text boxes, attractively bordered in the same stripes that decorate the end papers, bolster the text, providing such tidbits as "Young cubs eat and sleep most of the day. They sleep under the trees or in their den." A labeled diagram of a tiger's body and a map are appended. Also available are books on elephants, lions, and rhinoceroses." - Booklist

"In each of these six picture books in the series reviewed, Anastasia Suen explains the physical development and typical behaviors of baby animals from birth to adulthood. The animals covered are elephant, hippopotamus, lion, rhinocerus, baboon, and tiger. Facts interesting to primary-age students are prominently featured with additional information located in a small colorful rectangle on each double-sided page spread. A labeled diagram of an adult animal explains the function of specific physical characteristics, and a world map shows where those animals live. A final page includes a glossary, bibliography of books and Web sites, and an index. Illustrations use warm, rich colors of a savannah, wetland, or forest to show landforms in that region. Images are detailed to portray physical attributes (size comparison, skin texture,etc.) from different angles and to depict behaviors of adult animals and their offspring. Age appropriate factual content and informative illustrations make these books a worthwhile purchase to complement a unit on wild animals. Recommended." - Library Media Connection
