This graphically stunning picture book uses just two colors -- black and white -- to tell a sweet story of love, loss, and growing up. Kids will relate to learning how things are done from older kids and adults as they strive to do all the stuff they can do. And families coping with the loss of a pet will find comfort in a message of resilience in Big Cat, Little Cat that still acknowledges how hard that kind of loss can be. The cute drawings of cats playing, "working," snuggling, and sleeping, are irresistible.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
