Overview

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? Children learn 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.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3—Going through the days of the week in habitats around the world, Cohn introduces a variety of large, wild cats and parallels the behaviors with those of domestic felines. For example, a cheetah rests on a bed of grass on the savannah as "Warthog decides he would feel safer in the big hole he made in the ground." The next page features a spotted house cat stretched out in front of a window as "Mouse decides he would feel safer in his hole in the baseboard." Each dramatic spread highlights a cat taking charge of its own domain. The book has been written with discussion prompts and extension activities in mind. Several are included and more are accessible on the publisher's website. A free 49-page teaching guide will be attractive to teachers. However, the story can be simply enjoyed on its own.—Laura Stanfield, Campbell County Public Library, Ft. Thomas, KY

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 little kitty growls, I am Tiggy, and this is MY porch.¿ She chases spider under a plant stand. What I found funny was when the tables were turned on the wild cat. When a bobcat steps out of the woods unto a fresh cut grass he saw sitting on a lawn a kitty and a dog. The wild cat bobcat asked, ¿Who are you? And whose backyard is this?¿ The dog growls and barks. ¿I am King.¿ Little kitty hisses and puffs out her fur. ¿I am Queenie.¿ Together they shout, ¿This is OUR backyard!¿ The bobcat screams and bounds across the lawn and disappears into the woods. This book isn¿t only a fun picture book but it¿s full of 4 pages of educational activities like: ¿ What are cats and how are they related? ¿ Cats of the World: A map and matching activity ¿ Cat senses and adaptations ¿ Cat true and false questions This is an easy to read book with great illustrations that will have any child interested in the world of animals. I highly recommend this book for classroom reading as it introduces children to counting. FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.

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 brain right now, as our mama farm cat just had five kittens in our garage, but we would have enjoyed this book even without the new kitties. The illustrations are vivid and beautiful. The repetition is predictable, but in an excellent way that fully engages the young listener/reader. The included educational activities urge the reader to learn more about the cats and master the key points throughout the book. A lively and fun book!

Do you like cats? Then you should really enjoy this book. On Monday a tiger paces in the jungle. On Tuesday, a cheetah races across the plain. On Wednesday, a Kalahari lion sniffs the air in the desert. On Thursday, a snow leopard prowls through the icy mountains. On Friday, a cougar stands on a rock in the forest. On Saturday, a jaguar paddles across a lake. And on Sunday a bobcat steps out of the woods. Also, on each of those days, a house cat paces the porch, or runs up and down the stairs, or walks through the garden, or tiptoes through the park, or waits in a playground, or prances by a pond, or sits with a dog in a yard. How are these various cats different. And what do they have in common? Also, can you guess which two continents have no native wild cats? Cats are fascinating animals. A lot of folks, like our family, are "cat people." Big Cat, Little Kitty will introduce youngsters to the different kinds of cats, both wild and domesticated. Author Scotti Cohn has already written One Wolf Howls and is working on a third similar book On the Move about seasonal migrating animals. And the lush, colorful drawings by Susan Detwiler have a great visual impact. In addition to illustrating One Wolf Howls, she has also provided illustrations for the award-winning Pandas' Earthquake Escape. The four pages of "For Creative Minds" learning activities at the end include answering the questions what are cats and how are they related, a cats-of-the-world matching activity, information on cat senses and adaptations, and cat true-false questions. More free activities to do at school or home may be found online at Sylvan Dell's website. And there is the added benefit of reinforcing the days of the week. It's an all around great book.

Cute, fuzzy little house kitties and big, fearsome cats of the wild - what do they have in common? In this book, the young reader will learn all about cats of the jungle, savannah and even the desert while also discovering what these big cats share with their distant cousin, the house cat. Big Cat, Little Kitty is a cleverly arranged book that alternates between a two-page spread of a wild cat followed by a two-page spread of a similarly marked house cat. Each big cat is seen in its natural habitat and is asked by another animal "who are you?" and "whose lake/jungle/savannah/etc. is this?" On one page we see a beautiful snow leopard prowling in the snow. >>"Who are you?" asks a hare. "And whose mountain is this?"/ The big cat leaps onto a frosty ledge. She hisses and yowls. "I am Snow Leopard, and this is MY mountain."/ Hare is lucky. He scoots into his burrow just in time./ Upon turning the page, the reader is greeted by Snowflake, a lovely pure white cat who is asked by a cardinal "and whose park is this." Snowflake has the same response as the snow leopard, "I am Snowflake, and this is MY park!" In addition to teaching the similarities and differences between the ferocious cats of the wild and house cats, the author also injects a lesson on the days of the week as each two-cat comparison happens on progressive days of the week. The illustrations in this book deserve special mention as they are absolutely stunning and add a tremendous amount to an already impressive book. At the end of the book are several pages of fun facts which include a world map noting where wild cats live, a true/false questionnaire, and how cats have adapted to their surroundings. There are additional resources provided on the publisher's website. Quill says: Big Cat, Little Kitty is an excellent book to teach youngsters about wild cats and their domesticated cousins.
