    1. I got this book as a promo from the author. Thank's Scotti, and thanks first reads! (Won this from First Reads contest.)This is a really cute and educational picture book. It's appropriate for both boys and girls; the reading level is ages 4-8, I think that's fair. What I like about this book is that there's a lot of educational value to it. The author even had a curator from the Smithsonian Zoo's Great Cats exhibit review the book for accuracy! Aside from the obvious feline theme, the author e [...]

    2. My Review: The author introduces us to seven wild cats like the tiger, cheetah, lion, snow leopard, cougar, jaguar, bobcat and pet cats in their different habitats. On different days of the week, each wild cat and the kitties are asked questions about whom they are and their habitat. “Who are you?” asks a gibbon. “And whose jungle is this?” The big cat growls, “I am Tiger, and this is MY jungle.” She chases gibbon up a tree. That same night, a spider asked the same questions. The lit [...]

    3. Synopsis: 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 a ball of yarn? How are they different? This book 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. Overall thoughts: My family has cats on the [...]

    4. Cohn’s book is a wonderful introduction to the big cats of the world. After introducing each big cat, a domestic cat is introduced and their similarities are shown.By indicating where the cat lives and what other animal lives there, the author brings in geography. The tiger lives in the jungle where the Gibbon also lives. The cheetah lives on the savannah. There are warthogs in the Savannah also. The lion lives in the Kalahari where the Springbok, a grazing mammal, also lives.Although the big [...]

    5. This is a translation of the 2011 book Big Cat, Little Kitty. The illustrations go well with the text. It is a story book filled with factual information about the cat family.The story portion of the book juxtaposes a wild cat with a domestic cat with similar features. It follows a pattern that can be used in lessons (time of day, days of the week, and repetitive text). The pattern is well established, but goes on a bit too long for younger readers.The back matter of the book includes definition [...]

    6. It was an okay choice for an older kid (preschool, age 3-5) storytime, but even then it was on the wordy side and I had to cut out bits. And it just didn't engage the kids. I wouldn't read it again at a storytime, but I know it would be a good choice for parents and kids to read one on one. It's got great pictures and a fantastic theme/concept.

    7. This is a nice way for small children to study the world of cats large and small. I love all the information that Sylvan Dell Publishing get into their books and the added activities on their website helps encourage further learning. These books are a great way to get small children interested in the world we live in.

    8. Good book.My 7 yr old nephew enjoyed the book. Kept his interest and was able to read it himself with might final help

    9. Adorable look at the comparison between wild and domesticated cats. Lots of facts and lively, colorful, wonderful illustrations.

    10. This is a beautiful book with text that will make kids think about the difference between wild cats and domestic. The lush illustrations by Susan Detwiler jump off the page. Beautiful!
