This is a sweet story about a little girl and her cat.

They are the best of friends, and they do everything together—stump jumping, leaf leaping, slip sliding, and lunch munching. But what happens when Meow goes hide hiding?

Written in singsong text with childlike illustrations, this is the perfect book for children just learning how to read.

A little girl and her cat experience a variety of daily routines with each other. The book features simple colorful cartoon illustrations, a variety of common daily activities and simple prose for each activity. The book would be appropriate for encouraging print motivation.
Picture book, 2011

This was a cute story about a girl and her cat. The wording is very simple. However, it could almost be used in a literature circle as a wordless picture book.
Not my favorite, but cute book, maybe only worth two stars, except that it brings adorable grins to my 3 and 5 year old kids. They love watching the little girl play with her kitten.
Sweet, gentle, simple, and whimsical. Bright colors, child-like illustrations, and extremely spare verbiage tell us the story of a girl and her cat, Meow, going through their day. They eat, play, and imagine. This was one of six books I read to my Head Start group this morning, and one of only two that actually engaged them (they are an extremely rambunctious group with the collective attention span of a flea). They repeated some of the lines after me, like a refrain.

I just adore the simplicity

Very simple. Only a few words on each page
Honestly, we bring home so many kitty books from the library- both kids are perpetually drawn to them and sometimes I see one I can't resist. What can I say, we love cats!

I liked the simplistic illustrations and while I appreciate the simple text and story, there wasn't anything to make this books stand out.

Might appeal to very young cat-lovers, especially girls.

Not a big fan. The only thing I can see this book being good for is sight word recognition. It repeats all the same words over and over again, and the illustrations look very, very childish. It wasn't my favorite out of the ones we borrowed from the library, and it's going back tomorrow.
A little girl takes readers through her day spent with her cat. The text is simple and repetitive which makes it a great book for very beginning readers to gain their independence. The artwork is childlike (think Maisy books), which causes me to rate it a little lower.
Mommy review:
This was fun because there aren't a lot of words and there is a lot of repetition and a light plot, so I think it helps with early reading.

The illustrations are humorous and fun, and the colors are nice and vibrant. The story was simple but perfectly paired with the images...
Apparently the author was going for some sort of "written-by-a-three-year-old" feel. He succeeded.
How did this get published. One of the worst library books we have ever checked out.
Girl. Cat. 1 to 2-word sentences. Sing-song. Cute illustrations.
A little girl and her cat enjoy a full day of playing together.
