Wacky fun friendship book

This book is very silly but always makes my 2 year old laugh. Plus it's a nice message about making friends, and not judging at first sight.

Dazzling, or Frazzling?

Comments-really doesn't stand out from other picture books, but great friendship lessons. At least it teaches kids new things. My kids just (used to) love those illustrations. I mean, this book could tell the story just with the pictures. But this is a warm-feeling book-it makes you feel good.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

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.
