Board Book Review: Cat Comes Too, by Hazel Hutchins and Gosia Mosz (Illustrations)


Cat Comes Too, by Hazel Hutchins and Gosia Mosz (Illustrations)

This adorable board book helps build language skills.

A curious little cat follows its owner up to the attic. Brightly colored illustrations clearly show the obstacles that the cat meets along the way.

Very young children will love the antics of this irresistible cat as it explores its world. Little will they realize that they are also honing their language skills as the word pattern based on “too” takes them through various parts of speech. With its predictable, repetitive text, this board book lends itself perfectly to having small children chime in. For older preschoolers, the simple language makes it an ideal learn-to-read book.

A companion book, Dog Comes Too, is also available. These books follow on the heels of the bestselling Up Cat and Up Dog, winners of the 2012 National Parenting Publications Awards.

Reading level: Ages 2 and up
Board book: 26 pages
Publisher: Annick Press; Brdbk edition (February 26, 2013)

My Thoughts:
I don’t think this book could be any cuter than it is.  But that is just the frosting on the cupcake.  This simple board book also helps build language skills in little ones as they follow the cat’s exploits around the attic.

Adorable illustrations and a short, simple story.

    Oh so both the companion and this book were good. I'm glad (:
    They both look like sweet books a little child could really like.
