My Big Cats Journal

In search of lions, leopards, cheetahs and tigers

Steve Bloom

£7.95

Awe-inspiring photographs for children eager to find out more about the day-to-day life of big cats

Overview

Follow Steve Bloom as he travels across continents taking photographs. Find out how big-cat predators survive in tough conditions; how they live, grow up, hunt and have babies. Blooms in-the-field account makes a compelling narrative in the same way that the voiceover on a natural-history television programme is both informative and pacy. The photographs are full of drama. They are sharp and clear, and bring the subject to life for children. At the back of the book there is a brief section on how to take photographs of animals in the wild. Here, children will also find helpful tips about taking photographs of animals at home.
