“I Am Cheetah” is part of a series of books Stephanie J. Teer is launching to educate children aged 5-10 about endangered species. Sprinkled throughout the story and woven seamlessly with the narrative are specific details about cheetahs. Endnotes provide additional facts. The author realistically addresses bullying. This high-interest book is accessible to young readers who want to read chapter books but are not quite ready for the reading level of many chapter books.
