I am a Cat
Abrams Books for Young Readers, 2017
From the dust jacket, “Simon thinks he’s a cat. But Lion, Cheetah, Puma, Panther and Tiger disagree. Can Simon convince the big cats that they are all more alike than they seem?”
I love reading books when the main character is named after me! Well, at least we share the same name! Anyway, for every reason the big cats give for why Simon is not a cat, Simon just takes it all in and in the end, he challenges what they believe. My favorite part is in the beginning when Simon says, “I am a Cat” and at first, the big cats just stare at him, and then they burst out laughing wildly. So funny! Your kittens will just love this book! And maybe they’ll get the subtle lesson that while we are different on the outside, we are really all the same on the inside!!!
Rating 5 out of 5 paws – Simon is just too adorable not to rate a 5!
