Cat Club - Reviewed by School Library Journal
The visual appeal of cats comes through in these breed introductions. They are not meant to be care guides; instead they touch upon the most prominent features of each breed, such as fur, size, and coloring. The simple, enthusiastic text identifies general physical characteristics: “This is a Maine coon! These cats are big.” General behavior traits are also noted. For example, “[Birmans] love to play!” Highly engaging photographs capture each breed’s charm, depicting varieties of colors and markings, different ages, and a mix of still and action views. Most include at least one kitten photo; all show children with different skin tones interacting with cats as pets. Each book closes by asking readers if they would like to own the featured cat. VERDICT Popular pets depicted with strong visuals and just a bit of information.
