The world is full of categories or groups of things, such as these different kinds of foods: plants, meat, fish, eggs, and dairy. Other categories or classes of things include fish, umbrellas, sports, and hats. My favorite category or kind of food, for instance, is pasta—it really fills me up, and there are so many interesting shapes! My favorite category of animal is the dog, especially since I truly love my dog, a golden retriever named Aslan.
