Grade 4-6 Africa's Masai Mara Nature Reserve is the setting for this engaging photodocumentary of the daily life of a pride of lions. Hofer explains that she and Ziesler spent a year observing the animals in their natural habitat, and the fine close-up views of the animals with their young bear testimony to the patience devoted to this project. Personal references to the author and photographer appear only in the introductory paragraphs and briefly at the conclusion of the book; most of the text is a straightforward, informative description of the lions' behavior as they raise their young and hunt for prey. Some of the color photographs bear an orange caste that is not altogether attractive but suggests the shimmery haze of a hot climate; many of the pictures are lovely, high in quality, and remarkable in content. Herds of zebra and gnus are depicted sharing the landscape with the many lions shown singly and in pairs and groupand groups. The animals viewed here are both intriguing and irresistible, and the well-crafted account is an excellent introduction to the species. Margaret Bush, Simmons College, Boston
