A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this book.
Cat’s warm exchanges with her friends reinforce social interactions, and she shows that making a new friend is as easy as saying hello.
Positive Role Models
Big-hearted Cat the Cat has a friendly greeting for everyone.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this friendly little book is fun to read, and a good choice for beginning readers.
Is It Any Good?
Cat the Cat skips, jumps, and pirouettes with delight in this simple but cute book. Kids will relate when she stops up short at the sight of a giant yellow-green, four-armed creature stacking blocks -- and giggle when she and the creature scatter the blocks in sheer joy. Simple words and repetition make this an especially fun and rewarding choice for beginning readers.
Simply drawn, brightly colored cartoons are as exuberant as Cat and her friends.
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.
