      While I didn't like this as much as Waiting for Ice, Markle & Marks are consistently good at presenting a realistic tone for what it might feel like to be an animal. The bloodiness and brutality of a predator/prey life is strong in both the words and the pictures. Words and pictures are in a corresponding relationship throughout the book. Marks' watercolors are just impressionistic enough to avoid a sense of photo-realism. While his animal figures are impeccably drawn, the looseness of the w [...]

      2013. Concept 9. Good read aloud during endangered species unit or in conjunction with the snow leopards informational book. All about snow leopards growing up and learning their lessons they need to survive.

By the end of the second summer, the young male snow leopard has completed his lessons when he shares his first big kill with his mother and sister. Back matter includes information about this endangered species with additional resources to investigate and an Au [...]

      This beautifully illustrated book is about a family of snow leopards. Twin cubs learn from their mother ways to survive in Pakistan's Hindu Kush Mountains. Alan Marks's watercolors are gorgeous. I love the last one of the mother and her growing cubs. I like that Sandra Markle teaches children about snow leopards through narrative verse. If they have brothers or sisters, they will be able to relate to the cubs' antics, mistakes, and triumphs.

      Stunning book! The narrative follows one snow leopard family, showing how the cubs learn to hunt and survive in their harsh Asian mountain habitat. The text is beautiful, brief, and dramatic. The art is gorgeous! I didn't like one page where the art contradicts the description in the text, but other than that, I found this book pretty dang flawless.

      Narrative non-fiction about a mother snow leopard teaching her cubs how to hunt and survive in their harsh environment. Additional information in the back of the book could answer some questions that the text doesn't cover. There are also websites, with video links, to observe snow leopards in action.

    • Karen Arendt says:

      A great book to use to introduce students to research process. Rad the book to students, then do some research on snow leopards. Pair students and have them each bread arch one question. Come back together as a group and share what was learned. This could easily be done with 1st or 2nd grade.

    • Beverly says:

      Lovely pencil and watercolor illustrations. This is a realistic book that depicts how young snow leopards learn many things from their mothers, including how to hunt. Fascinating information, but simple enough for primary grade students.

    • Attila says:

      Beautifully done. The pictures reminded me of Ed Young's work. Nice narrative non-fiction.

    • Rebecca Plaza says:

      Lots of good detail on the daily, seasonal life of snow leopards on the mountains of Pakistan.

      A snow leopard mother and her two cubs in Pakistan's Hindu Kush Mountians. Engagingly written, informative, and beautifully illustrated.
