It has labels and on the first page there a thing that shows measurements of some big cats. On page 6-7 there's a map. After that page there is skeletons and fur. Diagrams! On page 13 it shows their pupils in light and in dark. On pages 15-16 there is a cat doing the same thing as a big cat. It sort of shows ancestors. There's chapters of more than one kind of cat. Shows examples, captions. There is a page where it shows them killing prey.
This book was bought for my 3 1/2 year old nephew who loves animals, especially tigers. This is a wonderful book for him because the writing was informative so he was taught a lot one of his favorite animals. The photographs in the book are bright and colorful catching the eye of both the reader and observer. This is a great book because it is something he will be able to look at and read as he gets older. Since it is a book that can be enjoyed over and over it is a great purchase for a curious young boy who loves animals. I recommend it for anyone with a child who has a love of animals and thirst for knowledge.
