Reviews - What do customers think about The Cheetah's Tale?
Poignant Jan 5, 2006
Aided by wonderful watercolor illustrations, this is a heartwarming story that is just right for older children. There are several messages interwoven throughout the story - about love, friendship, compassion, and loss. The story involves a young girl, Sara, and the cheetah she finds and befriends. She helps to raise the cheetah, who she names Flag, for a few months, and her relationship with the animal brings attention to the breed. Their friendship opens the door to understanding not only for Sara, but for her classmates as well. I would definitely recommend this book - it isn't particularly long, but still manages to bring home a message about caring for wild animals.
