I was disappointed with this book. I love cats & thought this book would be a great one to read during a story time. However, the story was repetitive and it really didn't have an ending. I don't think little ones will enjoy this in a group setting, however older readers might just like it.
*This is my personal opinion and should not discourage you from reading this book.

1st read: (2 stars) This book was okay. I was really excited about the book because the illustrations looked really cute and I love cats, but I didn't like how the book repeated certain words. This is more of a poem made into a book I feel like. It did rhyme which was nice, but I just didn't like how some words repeated. I could do without that part. The cats were cute though, especially the kittens!

2nd reread: (3 stars) Okay, I thought this book was just okay the first time I read it, but I did

I discovered this book in the school library, and to my surprise, is an entertaining book. Writing cats, artistic cats, and postal cats work on valentines in this rhyming book. Kids can relate to the activities the cats are doing (making valentines), enjoy the illustrations, and even the cute messages the cats have on their valentines on the floor (youll find them while youre reading). Some different ideas that can be used with this book include having other Valentine's animals

Here is kind of a repetative story about cats and what they do when writing cards, painting pictures, and mailing them off for delivery.

Valentine Cats is a cartoon illustrated book. This is a book that portrays the text to the t. It is very useful for the reader to stop and look at the pictures to make sure they are on the right page. Also the illustrations are calm, helps the reader stay focus and not distracted from the text. Another thing is that each picture is outlined by a red border on
