A beautifully illustrated book of cat behaviors. Fun to read with toodlers but have you cat actions worked out ahead of time as they want to try the benaviors.

A beautifully illustrated book of cat behaviors. Fun to read with toodlers but have you cat actions worked out ahead of time as they want to try the benaviors.

In this beautifully simple and visually striking book, a tiny kitten observes an adult cat to learn how to stretch, clean, listen, hunt, pounce, and feast, as well as other essential cat behaviours. The spare, dynamic cut-paper illustrations "miraculously evoke the frisky, fluid physicality of feline movement" (Kirkus Reviews), and the playful kitten's eagerness to learn will resonate with children and invite repeat readings. With just a single word per page, How to Be a Cat is a great pick for beginning readers, but will delight readers of all ages.
