A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this book.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that kids of all ages will enjoy this fun, interactive book with real-life photos of 22 different breeds of cats, simple playful text, and a reference page that gives the personal and breed name of each cat in the book.
Is It Any Good?
Three cats stare out from the cover inviting, almost daring the reader to open this book filled with furry fun. One has his paw in a fishbowl, and tries to swat at the goldfish when the reader pushes the arrowed tab. The other two have furry tails to stroke, and the word "cat" is written in large black letters above them...bold, but simple. Eyecatching, uncomplicated, and to the point, this book about cats is also real, playful, and amazing on several levels.
The youngest kids will like the playfulness of the pages, early readers will enjoy reading the simple text, and older kids will like learning the real names of the 22 different cats.
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.
