Nonfiction Monday -- Cats vs. Dogs

Cats vs. Dogs by Elizabeth Carney. Washington, DC: National Geographic,2011. Another National Geographic Kids series. Available now.

This argument has been going on for over 9,000 years and still isn't settled. Which pet do you think is better -- Cats or Dogs?

This third level reader compares them in many ways.
Dogs' noses are better sniffers -- Winner = Dogs!
but Cats hear more than humans or dogs -- Winner = Cats!
(and so on)

A dog and cat 'dictionary' is included which compares the same and different ways both animals communicate.

This will be popular with both dog and cat owners. And with those first and second graders who would love to have a pet. (not to mention adults who pick up the book)

Check the National Geographic website for more books in this National Geographic Readers series, the easy-to-read books for curious kids!
