ADVENTURES OF RILEY: TIGERS IN TERAI (Riley's World Series®)

Author: Amanda Lumry and Laura Hurwitz

Illustrator: Sarah McIntyre

Reserve at the Library

Publisher: Eaglemont Press, ©2003

Material: hard cover

Summary: Uncle Max is in Kathmandu using his expertise of camera traps to help locate and study tigers. There is plenty of fun for Riley and cousin Alice: riding an Asian elephant and spotting truly rare species like the clouded leopard. And plenty of danger, too: sloth bears and soth bears. This book follows Riley as he travels to Nepal to count tigers and learn about life in the Himalayas.

Type of Reading: family reading, anytime reading, read aloud book, interactive reading

Recommended Age: 5 to 10

Age of Child: Started reading with 5½-year-old child.

Young Reader Reaction: A book about tigers caught our child's attention, but it was all of the other animals (particularly the hanuman langur monkey) that kept their interest. We didn't realize just how much our child was taking away from our Riley adventures until, unprompted, s/he spotted one of the hidden compasses!

Adult Reader Reaction: This is a wonderful book series. Our child is mostly interested in the story, but we love the box insets with factual information and the photography.

Pros: Kids can learn about scientific study, endangered species, animal facts, geography, and culture, too. Cover-to-cover there is plenty to learn.

Cons: None.

Borrow or Buy: Buy! This is a book series that is loaded with great information on top of a fun story. It is fun to have for personal and educational reading.

Educational Themes: The story is fun as a read-aloud book, but has much more long-term value for independent readers. Elementary-aged children, in particular, will find it fascinating reading and a good jumping-off-point for more study.
