My cat likes to hide in boxes, by Eve Sutton & Lynley Dodd. This book was recommended to me by a friend. All cat lover’s will love this books, especially if their cat, likes to, erm, hide in boxes. A nicely illustrated simple book comparing how “My cat likes to hide in boxes” whilst all these other wonderful cats from France or Spain can do different things (dance and fly aeroplanes). The book has a nice flow to it and you’ll soon be able to recite it by heart!
There are cats in this book, by Vivianne Schwarz. This is currently our favourite cat book (but don’t worry, we are fickle). This book is fun and the reader is drawn in, as the cheeky cats talk to you and encourage you to “tuck them in” or “turn the page”. It is more than just a “lift the flap” book, corners are cut out so you can see subsequent pages, enticing you to turn the page and find out more. These cats are cheeky and fun and you get to take part!
Mog, the forgetful cat, by Judith Kerr . A classic children’s book that goes hand in hand with the Tiger that came for tea. Red Ted (2.5yrs) has loved this book for a long time. I think he likes the cat and he likes the repetitiveness of “Bother that cat”, as Mog increasingly gets himself into trouble throughout the day. So, yes, Mog is a clumsy and forgetful cat, much to the dismay of his owners, who are constantly bothered by something that clumsy Mog does (sitting on hats, forgetting how to get into the house and waking the children!). Eventually Mog saves the day (by accident) and is rewarded with a medal and eggs. A sweet classic that won Red Ted over.
