The latest volume in Ryder and Rothman's outstanding "Just for a Day" series uses a second-person point of view to describe one night in a jaguar's life as he hunts along the forest floor in a South American rain forest. Ryder's text is poetic and informative, while Rothman's detailed acrylic paintings are based on his primary research in a rain forest in French Guiana. (Ages 3-7)
