Summary It s early morning in the Amazon rain forest. A caiman glides through the waters of a muddy river. Suddenly, with a huge splash, a jaguar leaps from its hiding place on the riverbank. In an instant, the jaguar sinks its sharp teeth into the caiman s thick, scaly skin. The caiman struggles and tries to fight back, but it s no match for the powerful jungle cat. Filled with information perfectly suited to the abilities and interests of its primary-grade audience, this colorful, fact-filled book gives readers a chance not only to learn all about jaguars and their Amazon rain forest home, but also to develop their powers of observation and critical thinking. Built-in investigations, such as figuring out how the jaguar s fur pattern helps it to hunt, and measuring the predator s sharp canine teeth, give readers a chance to gain insights beyond the facts and figures.
