Children's Literature - Carrie Hane HungMany of the American Shorthair cats are tabbies or felines with striped coats and some of the cats in this breed are calicos. These features are just a few facts that young cat lovers can learn about the physical characteristics and personality of this breed of cat in "Playful Cats," "From Kitten to Adult," and "Caring for American Shorthairs" which are the three, short chapters in the book. There are many full page, color photographs of the American Shorthair cats and kittens that support the text. The information is basic and brief yet provides opportunities for an introduction to using informational texts through a table of contents, glossary, and index. Those cat aficionados who wish to seek more feline details may explore the text references and the FactHound website that are included. This book is part of the "Cats" series, which features different breeds of felines and the books in the series follow a similar structure. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
