Up Cat by Hazel Hutchins with illustrations by Fanny
As a non-animal person (or rather, someone who likes animals from a distance), this book is a perfect example of why I don't feel the need to have a cat in the house. But as a book for young children, it has great repetition, fun illustrations, and lots of common words, phrases, and images. It's a perfect companion to Up Dog (who even has a cameo here) and likely to be a favourite among animal lovers, big and small.
Find it at IndieBound.
