Cat Tails, Bear Claws (Animal Tales) – School Library Journal
In eight spreads, these small-format books offer information about their respective animals and a fictional story. The left-hand page includes one or two facts and a colorful, often close-up, photograph of the creature. It faces a story about an animal character. . . . Both texts are repeated in the back of each book in a section labeled “Speed Read.” Each title also includes a one-page glossary that offers definitions for some challenging words.
