“Three stories you can read to your cat”
A review of children’s books by Eveleth Hill
By Sara Swan Miller; Illustrated by True Kelley This book is great for readers of new chapters, especially those who have cats to hang out with. Words and images capture the contrary, insightful and independent nature of these animals.
Chapter 1 – The rainy day Chapter 2 – The delicious insect Chapter 3 – The good day Invite your cat to come and listen to a story. Be sure to pet your cat while you read. Cats love cuddles almost as much as stories.
By Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault Illustrated by Ted Rand This book is pure magic for reading aloud. In an old farmhouse bathed in the light of a full moon, a young boy creeps up to his bedroom window and looks out.
“The Black Lagoon Book Report” By Mike Thaler Illustrated by Jared Lee Hubie is very unhappy with his last mission. He has to do a book story – not a comic book – not a picture book, a real book with chapters! How will he ever go through all these pages of words? He finds the perfect book for every occasion – “Robin Hood”.
“Froggy’s Halloween” By Jonathan London Illustrated by Frank Remkiewicz For Froggy, Halloween means dressing up. What will Froggy be for Halloween? Super frog? Nope! Ghost Frog? Nope! Maybe something with fangs. Nope! How about a frog prince – great idea! And her mom has the perfect treats for Halloween – chocolate covered flies. Delicious!
