Cheetah Dreams - Children's Book Review and Giveaway


Book Overview:

Cheetahs are the most rapidly vanishing cat in Africa. Share the dreams of a bright future for cheetahs while engaging sidebars provide a wealth of natural history information. From cleat-like feet to tear-marked faces, these majestic cats are well adapted to life on the African plains. The fierce predators sprint after their prey at high-speed, an exhausting dash that leaves them ready for a nap! This rhythmic text will lull readers into cheetah dreams of their own.


My Review:

I'm always excited when Arbordale Publishing releases new books each season.  The company has recently released four new books, with Cheetah Dreams being one of them.

A story within a story, Cheetah Dreams tells of the majestic cats the book is titled for.  The left side of the pages contain a poetic prose about cheetahs being able to do what nature intended, without the fear of extinction.  The right side pages of the book details the lifestyle of cheetahs, how they behave, and what is causing them to be endangered.   For instance, readers will learn that cheetahs are better at running than fighting and they have excellent hearing.

The "For Creative Minds" section after the story has lots of learning potential.  Readers can learn about Cheetahs and their Big Cat Cousins, Cheetah Conservation, Cheetah Adaptations, and the difference between a Purr and Roar.  (Fun fact: cheetahs purr.)


Win It!

One person will win a Cheetah Dreams children's book.

I don't have a specific animal at the zoo that I prefer but I most enjoy the animals that interact in some manner. Whether it be making noise back and forth with me or bobbing their head along with mine. Being easily amused makes for a happier life.

Our rinky-dink local zoo has a super-sassy raven that I have fallen in love with. He talks and makes creepy noises and tries to steal things that are too close to his cage.
