“Cheetah cubs love to play with their mom. She lets them climb all over her!”
Follow a family of cheetahs from birth to adulthood in this unique wildlife book for young children, photographed close-up in the wild by an award-winning photographer. See how the mother cheetah protects her cubs, washes and feeds them, and teaches them how to hunt for their own food. And watch the cubs play – chasing, tackling and play-fighting. At last, at two years old, the cubs
are ready to look after themselves, and one day they will start a family of their own.
