Cat Skidoo by Bethany Roberts and illustrated by R. W. Alley is a cute picture book about two enthusiastic kittens who are caught up in the chase of some birds. If you have cats, you know how hopped up cats dash around.

The book is a quick read and fun for anyone who likes cats. Some of the rhymes are a little awkward and sometimes the meter is off. Anyone reading out loud should probably practice the book first before reading for an audience.

What really makes this book a delight are the illustra

A simple story - but the pictures are ADORABLE! It was a bit young for my 5 1/2 year old and 3 1/2 year old but they enjoyed it because of the cute illustrations and catchy word phrases.

Fun, rhyming romp through the backyard with two adorable kittens. Our girls really enjoyed this book, and with the repetitive narrative, they were finishing off the rhymes for me and laughing at the funny illustrations.

A really cute book about two kittens doing kitten things in the great wide world. Whenever their mischief leads to trouble it's "cat skidoo!" Both boys (Asher- 4 years old, Dex - 2 years old) really enjoyed yelling out "Cat Skidoo!" at the appropriate times.

Cute, fun illustrations.

This book is about two kittens getting into mischief. There is rhyming throughout the book, however, there's not as much of a rhythm as in other books I've read. It's good for phonological awareness and print awareness. I'd recommend it for children ages 2-5.

Cute illustrations. My boys loved saying "Cat skidoo!" on every other page. We read it every night until it went back to the library.

The expressions on these kittens are priceless as they scamper around their day. Repeated phrases, rhymes, and alliteration make this a great example of phonological awareness.

I've wanted to be a children's book author as far back as I can remember. When I was eight years old I wrote a story about a rabbit. I am still writing stories about rabbits- and mice, cats, children, monsters, and dragons!

When I was growing up, I was the neighborhood storyteller. I would make up stories on the spot for younger children in the neighborhood. I read a lot of books. But I was also a
