I love Cat the Cat. She's the main recurring character in Mo Willems' most recent series of picture books. The Cat the Cat books nicely slip into the space between the Pigeon books and the easy readers of Elephant and Piggie. In Time to Sleep, Sheep the Sheep!, it's bedtime, and it's up to Cat to make sure all of the animals (like Sheep the Sheep and Giraffe the Giraffe) are ready for bed. But when she comes across Owl the Owl - well, he's just waking up and ready for checkers! The pictures are brightly illustrated with vibrant blocks of colour, and the print is thick and perfect for reading either one-on-one or with a group of children. There's no shortage of picture books about bedtime out there, but don't miss out on this one.
Find it at IndieBound.
