Eyewitness Books are the kinds of books every child should have, one for each area of interest. These are not books that can be read in one sitting. These are books to pour over again and again, and the child will still find new things.

Juliet Clutton-Brock. DK Publishing, Inc. (c) 2011 Dorling Kindersley. This illustration of a cat’s club from a 19th-century children’s book presents a delightfully fanciful idea of cats socializing and having a good time. In real life, domestic cat colonies are based on the availability of food supplies, and consist of extended families of closely related females, with perhaps a few dominant males attached.

I love the DK books for my 5th/6th grade gifted classroom. I have about 60 of them and they are excellent nonfiction books. Most have AR levels from about 6.0-9.0 and have 1 AR point.

Fabulous pictures, great information in such a succinct book, and the kids love them.

There is no better resource for children for many many topics than Dorling Kindersley Eyewitness Books. New York Times describes each book as a museum between two covers. "Eyewitness Cat" is no exception.

One of the most astonishing facts about each book is the wealth and quality of photographs. On just the double title page of "Cat," there are thirteen individual photos of ten kinds of cats, wild and domestic, and and two separate pieces of art featuring cats. The verso (copyright) page has six photos and the Table of Content has one more. That is astounding! Considering the photos, the quality of paper, and the tight binding, what is more amazing is the very affordable price.

Once the reader enters the main text, a feast of photos awaits her. "Cat" is laid out like other Eyewitness books: define the topic--"What is a cat?," continue with the First Cats, then go to Cat clans, cat bones, fur, claws, supersenses, time-lapse photos of their leaps and falls, cleaning activities, their stalking abilities, young cats, and cat characteristics.

The next section starts with the lion, then goes through each category of wild cats, then spotlights the transitional cats that are wild but closely akin to domestic cats. How were cats tamed, what are the myths and legends surrounding them?

The next section focuses on champion cats, then other types: shorthairs, longhairs, street and feral cats. Caring for you cat is another section, amazing facts, and then all those domestic breeds are identified by photos and captions. Every single section is filled with photographs, both large and small, side notes, illustrations, charts, and so on.

Examples of the types of information throughout the volume: "In southern France there was once a wide belief in 'matagots,' or magician cats. One of the most famous was Puss in Books,...a cat so crafty that it won for its master a fortune and a princess for a wife" (49) "The Maine Coon is the oldest American breed of cat and one of the largest" (57). "When a pride of lions or a pair of domestic cats want to show they belong together, they make sure they smell the same" by grooming each other and spreading scent from their glands (21).

Eyewitness Books are the kinds of books every child should have, one for each area of interest. These are not books that can be read in one sitting. These are books to pour over again and again, and the child will still find new things. As a children's librarian, I cannot give a higher recommendation than I do to Eyewitness Books. "Eyewitness: Cat" is definitely and positively a keeper!

I love the Eyewitness books and buy them for my home-schooled grandson. His mother says that he has read this one over and over again in the last few weeks, so I figure he must enjoy it. When I asked him he said it was a "great book."
