I Love Cats!

Publisher: HarperCollins

(Release Date 12/26/17)

This text was originally published in 2007, so you may have seen an earlier version of this book before (maybe floating around at a library). BUT, wow, this reissue, with Bob Staake illustrations, is perfection.

The text is sparse; for example:

Don’t you love the color and the use of opposites for teaching little ones?

And every time we end with a refrain:

Because the text is so sparse it leaves a lot of room for the illustrator to have fun. And Bob does so here!

Can you see my favorite bit in this page spread?

Maybe we need to zoom in a bit…

😂😂😂. Love this so much.

If you’re a cat person, or know someone who is, reserve your copy of this one stat! Thanks to HarperCollins for sending me this one to review. I’m doing a giveaway over on Instagram- but it’s a quick one, so head over now if you’re interested.

Library books with dark covers are so hard to photograph. But don’t let that dissuade you from checking this one out. It is beautiful. We follow a father and his daughters as they explore lights – from the galaxy to city lights to their own front porch.

The illustrations are just beautiful. And can we stop for a minute and admire the composition of this family. I love the beautiful reality it reflects.

I mean seriously, how beautiful are these page spreads?!

This is also perfect for for bedtime – look how cuddled up and happy the kids are.

All around fabulous book. Definitely worth checking out.
