Cats from Around the World
Age Range: 6 - 9
Email this review


Calico the cat introduces 22 varieties of domestic cats from around the world. The familiar Persian, Siamese, and American Shorthair are here as well as the more exotic Chartreux, Birman, Munchkin, and Sphynx. For each one Tildes provides a brief paragraph of information accompanied by a charming full-color picture; Calico appears on each page as a thumb-sized guide. While serious cat fanciers will want more specific information than is given here, children will enjoy browsing this introduction, which concludes with a map indicating where different breeds originated. (Picture book. 6-9)
