I Love Catsby Sue Stainton, Anne Mortimer
Fat cats, thin cats, dancing cats, prancing cats.
. . . cats are wonderful in any shape, size, or color. And what's not to love? Cats are inquisitive, funny, and smart.
In this buoyant book, Sue Stainton and Anne Mortimer celebrate cats!
This picture book has what every cat person wants�a lot of felines in all their playful, mysterious glory. Mortimer's cats are second to none. Stainton's spare text�"Singing cats,/Swinging cats./Cats that wink,/cats that think./I love cats!"�offers just enough material for the artist, who endows each illustration with more texture and character than one would expect this side of 3-D. The white backgrounds increase the charm of the book by spotlighting the cats. The repetitive, rhyming text, use of opposites, and buoyant pictures make this a good selection for early readers. And with its smooth and easy read-aloud lilt, I Love Cats is perfect for group sharing.
