Available at: https://scholarsarchive.byu.edu/cbmr/vol40/iss2/199 Tessara Garrett Author Lisa J. Amstutz Illustrator Reviewer Tessara Garrett Rating Dependable Level Primary Pages 32 Year 2018 Publisher Lerner Publishing Group, Inc. ISBN 9781512456134 Book Review Tigers on the Hunt covers a lot of information in a brief span of pages. The reader learns about tigers? prey, how tigers hunt, and how much tigers can eat. The book addresses why tigers have stripes, their size and weight, where they live, tiger subspecies, and more. It is packed full of real, beautiful pictures of tigers in various parts of life. From birth to maturity, this book covers the tiger?s entire life cycle. This book would be interesting to readers interested in animals. The book engages the reader and reinforces comprehension with callouts that provide additional information and ask. The book also talks about how tigers are endangered through deforestation and poaching. The way this subject is addressed is somewhat heavy-handed for the intended audience of primary-aged readers. An adult might use this opportunity to teach about stewardship, show how humans also help wildlife, and discuss what the reader can do in their daily life to help animals.
