(4) K-3 Zoom In on Savanna Animals series. These books are serviceable introductions to some savanna-dwelling animals. Superficial facts about appearance, habitat, food, and life cycle are briefly explained in simple new-reader text and illustrated with clear stock photos. Some of the choices for the back-matter comparisons of height, weight, speed, or length are odd (e.g., at four feet, "a cheetah is longer than an acoustic guitar"). Glos., ind. Review covers the following Zoom In on Savanna Animals titles: Cheetahs, Elephants, Giraffes, Lions, Tigers, and Zebras.
