I received a copy of this book for review purposes.
This is a great read for kids ages two to five.
"Big Cat, Small Cat" takes readers through a fantastical world of felines, where they will encounter many different pairs of cats - from good and bad to happy and sad. The book's sing-song text leaves out the last word of each page, allowing little ones to chime in and complete the rhyme. Captivating, colourful illustrations provide clues for the words that have been left out. Introducing words like 'dirty', 'clean', 'nice', and 'mean', "Big Cat, Small Cat" teaches children about rhyming and opposites with a fun, fill-in-the-blank challenge that encourages participation. The illustrations by accomplished illustrator and cartoonist Ami Rubinger are charming and unique, depicting a variety of humorous cats that will engage young and old readers alike.
Because of the rhyme scheme of the book, my children was able to fill in the blanks. They and I myself really loved the illustrations of the cats, and more than anything my children loved getting the right answers. They thought that was the greatest thing on earth. The pictures and story work together to teach opposites to kids in a way that is easy and fun. Rubinger has done a great job of leading kids to the right answer in a way that teaches the concept of opposites and builds their confidence. This is a great book for any child it is a great way to have fun and learn at the same time. I would give this book a
