OMG, this book is amazing. I bought it for my granddaughter who is a cat lover. I knew she would enjoy reading about the things that cats do better than dogs. The book describes which animal is best at what, dog or cat. Of course in the end, they both come out even as cats are better at some things than dogs, while dogs are better at other things. It's interesting, fun, and informative. I would recommend this book to any age child, if the reading level is above them, buy it and read it to them.

Dogs & Cats gives a great comparison of characteristics of each. I'm a new Fan of NatGeo Kids! I purchased a NatGeo Kids magazine at a BJ's a few weeks ago. I picked my granddaughter up from school 4 days after I gave it to her (1st grader) & she was busy explaining one of the articles to her principal! The pages were already dogeared & worn. She loved it! After reading the reviews, I decided to order individual readers direct from to avoid subscription issues. The books are gift quality & beautiful. I plan to give them to her one at a time. They are chocked full of information with enough pictures & quick facts to compete well with her electronic hypnotize-rs!

I bought several of this books for my children, they love them so much that they have now a big collection, and I love the fact that they actually read them and are learning a lot, they come with different reading levels for each child reading skills.

National Geographic Kids books are great. The illustrations and photographs are amazing and the information they provide is set up in a way that keeps your children engaged and interested. They have small paragraphs and pop out boxes of facts over beautiful photographs and illustrations, instead of just a boring block of text. My girls love them and we have amassed quite a collection.This particular book is about the differences between Cats and Dogs. I love how this book is set up. You get facts on a particular subject about cats and then the corresponding facts about dogs, and then a winner is declared. For example, a dogs relatives are wolves, coyotes and jackals, while a cats relatives are lions, tigers and leopards with the clear winner being cats. They also compare diets, senses and behavior among other things. A really cool way of presenting the information. My 6 year old loves learning the facts and reading the books while my 3 year old loves the pictures. My 6 year old's kindergarten teacher has suggested more non-fiction books and these are perfect.We have purchased many of the National Geographic Kids books for our collection and they are a big hit in our house. There are so many different books with various subjects that will appeal to any kid. These are highly recommended. If you haven't already, do your kids a favor and start their collection today.

As a teacher these books are great early readers with lots of great and interesting facts. As a mom I love that my daughter wants every copy. She is excited to read now - and is always wowing my with interesting facts and details.

When I saw this book I figured K would like learning the difference between cats and dogs. They are both fun pets to have but are very different, not only by their looks but how they act.In Cats vs. Dogs we learn who has the scariest relatives, how cats and dogs are different in how they speak and what it means. How the are different in how they can smell things. After each part of comparing the animals we get a winner either it is a cat ,or dog, or a tie between the two.If you want some cool facts about cats and dogs read this book we both learned a lot.The reading leave is set at a three and I would think this is good reading for the older kids to read on their own. But if you are reading to your child then this is good for ages 5 on up.

Very educational without being boring. I used it while tutoring reading and kind of made a guessing game out of it. The kids loved it.We still talk about the differences between cats and dogs. A real winner.

This book is a great fit for early independent readers. The book includes wonderful National Geographic pictures of animals that kids love. The text is supported with great non-fiction features that make it a great book for reading instruction as well as pleasure.
