{Review} Big Cat by Ethan Long

Geisel-medalist Ethan Long s newest easy reader is for true beginners, offering laughs, a lovable and patient cat, and the simplest vocabulary possible. Two rowdy siblings love playing with their oversized kitty. They wake him up from a nap so he can fly and dance around the room while being smothered with hugs. But as Big Cat endures his final humiliation being dressed in a wig, hat, and high heels it s apparent that despite the discomfort, Big Cat loves his family. Long s long-suffering, big-bellied, feline is sure to charm readers. His understated text and hilarious characters with looney expressions will have readers rolling on the ground."

 My Review:

 Big Cat was so adorable. I read it with my nephew, he is in kindergarten. The publisher website said the book is for ages 4-8. It was perfect for a kindergartener . There was only one word that he had trouble with and that was the word Dance. He really didn’t try to sound it out, though. He told me he didn’t like the Big Cat, not the book but the cat pictures. He is not a cat lover like I am. I loved all the pictures. I am a die-hard cat lover and I couldn't resist getting this book. It shows how loving and calm cats can be when there is a little one around. They will put up with just about anything. Lol The illustrations were so cute and if a little one can’t read they can look at the pictures to find out what is going on. I am also in school to become a teacher right now and I will definitely have this book in my classroom.

5 Stars!
