Children's Book Review and #Giveaway: Big Cat, Little Kitty (Ends 5/14) CLOSED

Saturday, April 30, 2011 Posted by Dina N

Book Description
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.

My Review
My kids love cats and were fascinated by Big Cat, Little Kitty. This delightful book makes the connection between wild cats and their domesticated cousins. It subtly reinforces children's knowledge of the days of the week. For every day, the book introduces one Big Cat - a lion, tiger, bobcat, cheetah, snow leopard, cougar, and jaguar - and one cute little kitty. The beautiful illustrations visually show to kids that wild and domestic cats share many features. The eyes of the wild animals, the color of their fur and their spots are mirrored by the cats living in the garden, the backyard, and the porch. Each cat rules over his own habitat shared by other animals.

Similarly to other Sylvan Dell Publishing books I've read with my children, there is a Creative Minds section at the end of Big Cat, Little Kitty. Curious minds will find out more about the cat family, the cats of the world, cat senses and adaptations, and answer the cat true or false questions.

Big Cat, Little Kitty by Scotti Cohn is available on the Sylvan Dell Publishing site where you can preview the book and find additional educational resources. It can be purchased on Amazon.com, as well as at other retailers.
