    One thought on “Cat Got a Lot: An I Like to Read® book”

    1. This was a promising I Like to Read title that began as a repetitive pattern read for young readers and lost its way. Cat decides to go out, as he descends the stairs of his apartment building we see all of his neighbors enjoying different activities. When Cat gets to the street the repetitive pattern for the first two shops are "He saw", "He went in." (here he purchases something), and "Cat went out." for the next three shops the author omits what Cat "saw", breaking the pattern that young read [...]

    2. Cat lives in an apartment house in the city. One day he goes down the stairs, then out, then into many stores where he makes a variety of purchases. It turns out that each suits a neighbor, and only one is for Cat. This book's pages are filled with details that will have young readers carefully poring over each and every brightly-colored eye-magnet. The gentle, simple text is ideal for beginning readers, and its liberal use of out, in, up, and down, will make it a favorite with preschool teacher [...]

    3. An I Like to Read book whose illustrations will surprise readers every time. This book is perfect for beginning readers (PreK-K). The simple text and colorful illustrations will help build confidence while reading a “real” book. Readers will find themselves making predictions about which friend cat is buying each item for. I can’t wait to share this book with the kindergarten teachers at my school.

    4. Cat goes in and out and in and out of stores buying so many things. He delivers all the gifts to his friends and everyone is content. As great as it is that Cat is so giving, this consumerism for its own sake is not the best lesson to be teaching. That aside, the early reader has many great discussable illustrations to help early readers enrich understanding and have lively conversation as they read aloud.

    5. Using only 20 different words, this "I Like to Read" book tells a story of friendship. Cat heads out to shop for himself, but he ends up bringing back gifts for his various friends who live in the nearby apartments. Young readers will enjoy the watercolor, gouache ink, and brown craft paper illustrations that completely fill the pages. This is an ideal book to help readers practice their reading and build fluency.

    6. This story as great illustrations but I'm not sure what it's trying to get across. The whole story was about a cat going out and buying thing. It's a cute story but not really anything for the classroom.

    7. Lots to explore in the illustrations. The story makes a few leaps that I'm not sure its intended audience will pick up on.

    8. Picture book PK-K. Busy illustrations with about three words on every page, so not a lot to this book. Good for early readers only.

    9. Reminds me of a trip to Walmart or Target. You go in for one purchase and come out with so many others and almost forget to buy what you first went in there for!

    10. Another sweet storyline about friendship and thinking of others.There are tons of colorful illustrations to pour over for young readers.
