With only a handful of simple sentences on each page, this book is just right for beginning readers looking to learn about this unique mammal. The text covers the basics, imparting information about lemurs' food, habitat, distinctive tails, families (or troops), and babies. Simple, colorful maps and diagrams illustrate key pieces of information: ring-tailed lemur size (smaller than most house cats), their main body parts, and where they live (Madagascar). Bold vocabulary terms and fact bubbles, plus a page of "Bonus Facts," round out the text. Large, vivid photos¬—many of them action shots—provide a sense of excitement to this engaging entry in the Awesome Animal Lives series (6 titles)."
