    One thought on “Five Black Cats”

    1. I was forced to go to Target to buy batteries and walked past a display with this book - and of COURSE I had to buy up both copies (would have bought more) for the kids I know. I do, afterall, have 5 black cats so I'm a huge softie when it comes to a book called "Five Black Cats"!The little troupe of black cats sets off and the story rhymes all the different things that go bump in the night that startle the little cats -- like bats or whatever. Then they get to a big house where they see a white [...]

    2. This is a cute find for Halloween! What I like most about this board book is that it's easy to make the story interactive. Almost every page has reoccurring critters, such as a spider hiding in one of the corners or a bat flapping in the sky. When we read this one, I usually ask the kiddo to "find the spider" and "find the pumpkins," as well as count the five black cats. Each cat also has a different shape (re: a moon, a star, a circle, etc) on its collar, so sometimes we spend some time finding [...]

    3. This was another book that I found on the Wal-Mart Halloween book display that was out for the perusing of curious book-readers. Unfortunately there wasn't much of a selection to go through and since I like cats I chose to quickly read this one as my bf was trying to get my attention for something else before we left the store - such is life. The book was fun but not much of a read. Basically there are five little cats with no introduction of how they came to know each other who are all out prow [...]

    4. Fun story - look at the illustrations closely and you'll learn the personality of each of the cats (quite distinct!). I liked the outcome with the lovely spooky overtones that build and build as the story progresses. For a board book this is meatier than any I've really seen before, leaving me impressed and thinking how nice it would be to read to a very young child something like this which is a pleasure to hold and allow them to turn the pages and play with.

    5. Cute little Halloween themed book, though we read it in the middle of the summer and still enjoyed it. The one drawback is that on a couple of pages, the text was hard to read because of the dark tones of the illustrations behind the black text - I wish the publisher would have switched to white text or blocked it out somehow.

    6. This is a fun, cute book I read to my daughter. The illustrations in the book are really good, and go along with the narrative of the story. This is a good way to introduce poetry to children when they are small.

    7. a fun story of 5 black cats slinking and sneaking around til they find themselves at a Halloween party. Fantastic illustrations will keep kids interested. Children will also love finding the spider on every page.

    8. Synopsis: "Five black cats set out through shadowy streets and dark forests. Along the way, they encounter bats and glowing jack o' lanterns. Then, they follow a tiny white mouse into a spooky old house for an annual Halloween party. The soft padded covers, rounded corners and sturdy board pages make this title a perfect fit for preschoolers!"My Review: I picked this one up for the Halloween season. The storyline doesn't always seem to flow together but each page is a nice little rhyme. Munchkin [...]

    9. I kept waiting for something more as I read this book. Five black cats enjoy the sights and sounds of Halloween, that's it. No counting down form five to none, no touch and feel no surprise ending. This was just eh for me.

    10. Woods read this one several times (er, well had me read it) so something about it held is attention! (11 mo)

    11. Such a cute little book my two year cousin loves it and its shows lol she's learned to count very well to five and just a sweet little adventure tale for kids.

    12. A fun little adventure following the titular five black cats, with a very Halloween ending. (Aletheia's review: "It really should be Six Black Cats - one, two, three, four, six!")
