    One thought on “Un Gato y Un Perro: A Cat and a Dog”

    1. Books that are in both English and Spanish on the same page are heaven-sent when I plan for bilingual story time because I have the option to either do the story in English or Spanish. I think the pictures are very cute and pleasing for small children. It also isn't text heavy, so I don't have to make any adjustments for my audience of three- to six-year-olds. In the story, the cat and dog are enemies who live in the same house, but they learn to become friends by helping one another retrieve th [...]

    2. My copy of this book is the bilingual version, The Cat and the Dog/Un gato y un pero.This short story is an English Second Language teacher's dream. I present conflict resolution in both English and Spanish (and I realize than not all ESL students have Spanish as their first language but a larger number of preschool children entering preschool are coming with no ability to speak English). The ESL preschool children in my class love this short book, by the end of the school year; they could recit [...]

    3. Masurel, Claire, and Bob Kolar. A Cat and a Dog. New York: North-South, 2001. Print. Ages 6-8. A Cat and a Dog is a very simple and not very educational or fun book that talks about the stories of a cat and a dog and how they do not get along. They fight over many things, and do never get along. This book was not one of my favorites, because it seems that it was published just for the heck of it and the purpose is not really potrayed other than the sense that students need to make sure that they [...]

    4. This story is about a cat and a dog who despise one another. As they play outside, the dog's ball gets stuck in the tree, then the cat's mouse toy got into the pool. They finally figure out that they can help each other. The dog goes in the pool to get the mouse toy, and the cat climbs up the tree to get the ball. I would use this book in the class to teach the American children another language other than English. If I had some Spanish speaking students in the class as well, they could help the [...]

Our girls love the blue cat. We enjoyed reading this book together, even though it was a bit 'babyish' for our them.

    7. LOVE this book. First, my little 4.5 month daughter loves it. The colors are bright and bold and have great contrast. She loves hitting the cat and dog!

What's not to love?

    8. El gato y el perro se pelean todo el tiempo. This is a cute, simple story of how a cat and a dog go from taunting and torturing one another to helping each other out and becoming friends.

    9. Published simultaneously in the U.S UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, A Cat and a Dog is a lovely tale of development of friendship and the different interests and skills that individuals bring to friendship.

    11. This is a very basic book with a predictable story line. The translation is very simple from Spanish to English, so it could be great for beginning English language learners to use in conjunction with the pictures. It also is a great example of friendship.
