Big cats are fierce predators that roam the world from the mountains to the deserts. How are these wild cats that hunt for their food the same as pet cats that might chase a mouse or ball of yarn? How are they different? The award-winning prequel to this book, One Wolf Howls, introduces children to counting and the months of the year as they watch the seasons changing. This sequel introduces children to the days of the week as they travel to seven different world habitats to meet the big cats, and then back home to compare and contrast the domestic cat’s behavior to that of its relative.
In this book, Big Cat, Little Kitty, children learn about the territories of tigers, cats, leopards, and cougars. While reading this book, I felt that it came across as the cats being possessive; however, this book is a great tool to teach children the different species of cats and their territories. In the "Creative Minds" section in the back of the book, there are learning areas to further educate about cats. For instance, there are true/false questions and an activity to match a cat to its habitat.
Big Cat, Little Kitty is a new Spring 2011 title from Sylvan Dell Publishing.
