Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Meeow books

“Uncluttered pages and primary colors make this a highly attractive book, as does the tactile jacket that allows readers to stroke fuzzy Meeow.”--School Library Journal

“Celebrate the wonders of imaginative play in these solid selections for the toddler set.”--Kirkus Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this straightforward story that touches on colors, cooperation and imagination, Braun (I Love My Mommy) introduces Meeow, a black cat with wide eyes and a red scarf, and his friends: Baa, Woof, Quack and Moo (like Meeow, the animals are named for the sounds they make). Simple, declarative sentences and gentle inquiries (“Meeow looks in his yellow bag. What have you found, Meeow?”) add to a cheerful mood. The animals, which resemble pliable plastic toys with their chunky shapes and friendly expressions, place different colored chairs in a row and gather other items (a bell, a whistle) in the midst of their creative play. Once everything is in place, the animals’ goal is revealed: “Ding-ding! Choo-choo! Meeow has made his very own train.” In the final scene, the train becomes real, releasing a plume of white smoke as the friends ride across a blue background. Readers should be tickled by the guessing-game aspect of the story, and Braun offers ample opportunities for the discussion of colors, shapes, animals and objects. Also available: Meeow and the Big Box. Ages 2–4. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
PreS—A little black cat is ready to play. His friends Baa, Moo, Quack, and Woof join him, carrying brightly colored chairs that they place in a line. Everyone has a seat, while Moo blows her whistle. The blank white background is replaced with a deep blue as Meeow and his friends' imaginary train is revealed. Braun's simple cartoon animals stand out clearly on the solid-color backgrounds. Color identification and onomatopoeia appear throughout this simple but appealing story. The smiling animals will appeal to fans of Lucy Cousins's "Maisy" (Candlewick) and to imaginative preschoolers in general, and the bold colors and simple narrative will be a hit during group sharing.—Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJ
