K-Gr 2—Employing a similar format as Bellwether's "Awesome Dogs," these simply told titles introduce a few different breeds of household cats. Each volume contains five short chapters covering each cat's history, appearance, and characteristics. The vocabulary includes appropriate and advanced words such as affectionate, cobby, tortoiseshell, and muscular—many of which can be found in the glossary. The endearing photos reflect the text well as they depict the topic cat in a variety of poses and settings. Among the additional graphics are a map showing the animal's country of origin and a photo chart of the breed's many coat colors.
VERDICT Young cat lovers will find these colorful offerings irresistible.
