Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-These easy-readers provide a wealth of information about cats and dogs in a kid-friendly way. Topics covered include the senses, size of litters, similarities to animals in the wild, methods of communication, and explanations for specific behaviors. Holub mixes interesting facts with information about pet care, stories about cat or dog heroes, and simple instructions for making inexpensive toys (Cats) or tips for training (Dogs). Cartoon illustrations are combined with candid full-color photographs of a variety of feline and canine breeds, kittens and puppies, and children interacting with their pets. The concise chapters with bold headings and clearly written texts make these titles solid choices for school reports on animals and great picks for reluctant readers. There is one small minus-the breeds shown in the photos aren't identified-but don't let that deter you from adding these engaging titles to your collection.-Wanda Meyers-Hines, Ridgecrest Elementary, Huntsville, AL Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
