Reviewed by Cayden Aures (age 5) and Mom for Reader Views (12/09)
In “Cat the Cat, Who is That?” Cat introduces us to all of her friends like Mouse, Duck, Fish, and to a special new friend at the end of the book.
Cayden: “I like that I can read the words in this book. Lots of the words are in there more than one time. I can read it to my brother. My favorite part was the end of the book where cat gets a new friend, the one that says “Blarggie!” He was funny looking!”
“Cat the Cat, Who is That?” is a very simplistic book with a lot of word repetition and words that sounds similar. It is a great book to share with a beginning reader as it contains many basic words like cat, fish, etc.. The illustrations are not complex, but they still entertain without taking the focus away from the text. We recommend “Cat the Cat, Who is That?” for any child just learning to read.
