My three year old was really excited to open the box to see the surprise hiding inside…..to her amazement it was a book about Cats (something she holds very dear to her heart, seeing how we have a 22lb cat at home named Rubberlips). As soon as she took the book out of the box she wanted to read it. We climbed into a comfy chair with her stuffed toy “puppy” and started the “That Cat Can’t Stay” adventure. She liked looking at the pictures and started to give the cats names that were quite funny: one was named Bushy, one was Floppy and one was Slippery and on it went. Upon reading the book twice, she had already picked up some of the rhythm of the book and she could tell me the next words to come, thanks to the familiar words of the book. We reread the book again the next day and she could tell me a lot of the words again and she gave the grey kitten the name of “Smoke”; I am sure the calico will get a name at the next reading. Thanks so much for the chance to review the book and for the opportunity to smile at the funny antics of my daughter yet again.
