This particular book is about the differences between Cats and Dogs. I love how this book is set up. You get facts on a particular subject about cats and then the corresponding facts about dogs, and then a winner is declared. For example, a dogs relatives are wolves, coyotes and jackals, while a cats relatives are lions, tigers and leopards with the clear winner being cats. They also compare diets, senses and behavior among other things. A really cool way of presenting the information. My 6 year old loves learning the facts and reading the books while my 3 year old loves the pictures. My 6 year old's kindergarten teacher has suggested more non-fiction books and these are perfect.
We have purchased many of the National Geographic Kids books for our collection and they are a big hit in our house. There are so many different books with various subjects that will appeal to any kid. These are highly recommended. If you haven't already, do your kids a favor and start their collection today.
In Cats vs. Dogs we learn who has the scariest relatives, how cats and dogs are different in how they speak and what it means. How the are different in how they can smell things. After each part of comparing the animals we get a winner either it is a cat ,or dog, or a tie between the two.
If you want some cool facts about cats and dogs read this book we both learned a lot.
The reading leave is set at a three and I would think this is good reading for the older kids to read on their own. But if you are reading to your child then this is good for ages 5 on up.
We still talk about the differences between cats and dogs. A real winner.
