The Book

A new addition to the family has arrived home and right away cat's curiosity peaks and he says,  

I am a cat.  
Are you a cat?"

Cat checks the new baby out very carefully trying to distinguish if they both may share the same species.  He discovers the newcomer doesn't look like a cat, doesn't meow, doesn't smell like a feline, or even have a tail.  Oh my, what can this alien creature be? 

Undaunted Cat continues his investigation and observes that both of them enjoy a good nap, have snack time together, and take luxurious  baths, just to name a few similarities.  Ultimately Cat deduces that although the new member of the family definitely isn't a cat,  the newborn baby is very likeable gets his approval to stay... paws down!  

The illustrations are bold, colourful and eye-catching and the language is simple and expressive.  This board book is sure to be read again and again and I highly recommend it for parents of young children as well as placing it in a classroom situation, a daycare or library.  There is a companion book available titled, "Dog's First Baby."  I highly recommend BOTH books for your little ones.
