Cat the Cat sure likes her friends. You will too! Join this spunky feline as she introduces the very youngest readers to her world, where a surprise is waiting in every book!
This book is a perfect early reader book, because it actually is easy! It contains only simple sight words, and the cadence and repetition help too. When my three-year-old was just starting to memorize sight words, this book was perfect–she was able to string together the words she knew and experience the magic of reading a sentence all by yourself for the first time. Now that she’s a little more advanced, this book is really too easy for her, but we still read it a lot because we enjoy it’s simplicity (and the opportunity to make silly noises at the end).
