Cat the Cat, who is that?Cat skips along, meeting a mouse, a duck, a fish. And then all of a sudden - EEP! - she meets a very strange creature. Should she be scared? Or fascinated? She has NO idea. But then this creature waves. Maybe... "It's a NEW friend!" Hooray! This is a fun book - it certainly made us giggle. And as a parent and teacher, I love the way Cat the Cat meets a new person, wonders about her, and then decides to try playing with someone new and different.
It's Mouse the Mouse!
This series is for a younger audience than the Elephant and Piggie books, and will not cause the outrageous laughter that that duo cause. But Cat the Cat is wonderful for toddlers with very short attention spans, or for preschoolers and kindergartners learning to sound out words on their own.
