5. This is another nonfiction book that is titled with a question. I believe this would peek children's interest to read the book.

Can your cat predict the weather? According to this book, if a cats continually checks out the window, rain is near. If a cat stretches his paws in front of him while lying down, bad storms are on the way. And, cold weather is approaching if they tuck their paws under them while they sleep. This book is filled with interesting facts about cats! And, it has great pictures.

What a fabulous little book! This is not your usual pet book. It had interesting facts and tidbits, particularly parts about communicating with your cat. I read the whole book because it seemed so interesting, and I don't even have a cat!

This book is full of information about cats, but the images and graphics are not the best. It looks like someone threw it all together at the last minute.
