Deep in the Amazon, two cubs are born to a loving mama jaguar. As the curious and precocious cubs grow, they are introduced to their forest home and those with whom they share it. Before long their happy days are interrupted by men and machines, and the young family goes in search of a new home. Now everywhere they travel, surprises await them. Join them to discover the wonders and dangers of today’s Amazon rainforest through the eyes of a jaguar.
Kosa Ely’s contemporary tale, along with Radhe Gendron’s vivid and captivating art, make this the ideal picture book to inspire readers, young and old, to protect the magnificent jaguar from extinction.
