They All Saw a Cat

They All Saw a Cat

The cat walked through the world, with its whiskers, ears, and paws

Many different creatures observe a cat walking by, but the way they all see it is a little bit different! And yet... they're still all seeing a cat.

This is a little science lesson in a picture book. Parents can explain to young listeners why the different animals see the cat the way they do. No explanations are present in the text, unfortunately, but they should be fairly self-apparent, or can be found with a quick search. The charming illustrations by Brendan Wenzel rightly won him a 2017 Caldecott honor medal.

Review by Lauren Shearer
Lauren Shearer writes words for fun and profit. She also makes films, but everyone knows you can't make a profit doing that. Her other hobby is consistently volunteering way too much of her time. You can read more of her reviews here.
