A cute story about all the things a cat will do to get food, and how they can present problems. Since it involves familiar animals, like pigs, fish, and dogs, the words and story are easy to understand for early readers.
This is an easy read but well loved by first graders. They love to read it with expression.
Clearly the best cat trap is cuddling up to the cat owner for some food!

This is a great story for introducing reading fundamentals to young children. There are fun, colorful illustrations and simple, rhyming and repetitive narrative that they will understand and be able to read with little to no assistance. Our youngest really enjoyed reading this book, even more so because she read some of it herself! We've read this one a couple of times.
Silly, charming and the perfect read aloud for young cat lovers who want to see if Cat will ever get that snack! This level 1 Ready to Read book has rhyming text, picture clues to help stuck readers and a fun, funny, furry feline to ensure they'll want to keep turning the pages.
This was a darling book for my six year old son to read. We laughed at the mishaps the cat had during his adventures throughout the story. I bought this book for Kindle, and the pictures are pretty small, but that's par for the course so I wasn't disappointed or surprised.
simple sentences, rhyming text, colorful illustrations, funny

themes: cats, food
This book has a lot of repetition so it's great for early readers.
