How To Be A Cat

HOW TO BE A CAT BY NIKKI MCLURE (Abrams Appleseed, 2013)

With a nearly monochromatic palette (a touch of blue is found on each page) McClure creates a beautifully simple story with stunningly simple illustrations. Mama cat is showing her kitten all of the things cats do. Each page (or spread) has one word depicting what the cats are doing. From stretch to explore to dream, each page is a visual stunner. This simple story does have a problem when the kitten gets separated from Mama while chasing a butterfly but on the very next page the frightened kitten is found. This is a book that little ones will pore over and maybe even pick up a sight word or two.
