Presents an introduction to cats and kittens, describing the different breeds, what they eat, and how to care for a new pet. From the "Beginning to Read" series, Level 2.
Unlike a picture book, which you would normally read from cover to cover, a factual book can be dipped in and out of, focusing on the illustrations and information that your young child is interested in. Talk about what they already know about the topic and relate the information from the book to your child's life, if possible. Factual books offer lots of new vocabulary and help broaden a child's general knowledge, both of which will later help your child to understand what they read themselves.
