Description

Big cats are fierce predators that roam the world from the mountains to the deserts. How are these wild cats that hunt for their food the same as pet cats that might chase a mouse or ball of yarn? How are they different? Children learn the days of the week as they travel to seven different world habitats to meet the big cats, and then back home to compare and contrast the domestic cat's behavior to that of its relative. The award-winning prequel to this book, One Wolf Howls, introduces children to counting and the months of the year as they watch the seasons change

Este diario fotográfico lleva a los lectores “detrás de las cámaras” en cinco santuarios sin fines de lucro y zoológicos de rescate, además de una granja (de atención) que han abierto sus puertas y sus corazones a los animales que necesitan ayuda desesperadamente
