I bought this for my 5 year old because she loves all of the big cats and she is obsessed with this book. She really enjoys going onto the internet using the links and has even learnt how to download files. The links are for Animal Planet, BBC Big Cat Diary, National Geographic and she sits and watches the videos etc on the computer. The pictures in the book are great and the information on the cats is more detailed than I thought. The book not only covers the usual lions, tigers, cheetahs and leopards but also American big cats and small wild cats.
This book is great to look at, really factual and well worth the money.

I bought this for my class (year 3) as a reference book for our topic. The children loved it. It's full of facts that are very easy to read and lovely illustrations. Each page is dedicated to a different big cat.
Also, it photocopies really well - so you can buy one and everyone can use it! I did this so that we could look at a different big cat on each table and then teach another group what they have learnt, etc.

A well written non-fiction book with all the components which are taught at KS1 level. Good illustrations, clear title, headings, captions etc. very suitable for supporting learning on wild animals.
