Scientists in the Field Series
Text by Sy Montgomery; Photographs by Nic Bishop
Houghton Mifflin. 2014
Grades 5 thru 12
I borrowed a copy of this book from my local public library
The decision as to who reviews what goes fairly smoothly between Cathy and I until there is a new Scientists in the Field book, then, Watch Out! I won this time because Cathy is allergic to cats! What we love about the series is the variety of fascinating topics, the quality of writing, and the stunning photographs. Chasing Cheetahs: the race to save Africa’s fastest cats continues the tradition. It is by far one of the best books about these beautiful mammals...the fastest predatory animal on Earth.
Chasing Cheetahs is great addition for middle school summer reading lists.
