Summary
From flightless, long-legged ostriches to winged rays, and from elusive, long-tailed snow leopards to wily foxes, the world of animals is wonderfully diverse. This popular and newly expanded series continues traveling the planet to study these and other fascinating mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, and invertebrates. Beautiful photos are paired with STEM-appropriate text to examine the featured creatures appearance, habitat, behaviors, and life cycle. Each book also presents a folk story that people have used to help explain the animals appearance or behavior. A basic exploration of the appearance, behavior, and habitat of snow leopards, the non-roaring big cats of Central Asia. Also included is a story from folklore explaining why snow leopards have spotted fur.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The Amazing Animals series delivers a fresh batch of irresistible critters! Pairing large typeface and succinct sentences with action-packed full-page photos, each double-page spread tackles a new topic, from the featured animal's habitat and anatomy to its diet and life cycle. The majestic mountain-dwelling cat takes center stage in Snow Leopards. Though they are unable to roar and sleep between 12 to 20 hours per day snow leopards are nevertheless fierce predators and, thanks to their thick tails, expert jumpers. Each entry concludes with a snippet of animal-specific folklore and a list of web and print resources. With abundant STEM appeal and high-interest subject matter, these installments offer an eye-opening first glimpse at the animal kingdom.--Shemroske, Briana Copyright 2018 Booklist"
