Fun and cute for a kindergarten reader. Words are both simple and challenging for young readers and the book are lengthy enough to discuss. Splat the cat is so fun to read and always a crowd pleaser.

How lucky my little 7yo is.

Her class ran an experiment in the classroom: they got an incubator and eggs from a farm, followed up all the process and are now, after hatching, taking care of the chicks until they go back to the farm. She's learned a lot the last few weeks.

To top it off, her fantastic teacher requested this book from the library and read it to the class. Then she offered my daughter, still struggling with her reading, to take it home to read with us. Splat is a favorite at home, so

I normally LOVE Splat the Cat, but this one wasn't a 5 star for me. Classroom pets can be somewhat relatable to kids, but this is limited because of allergies they don't do it a whole lot. It is a good way to show setting change to kids since he goes all over his house & to/from school. It just wasn't as energetic as some of the others to me. ...more

Read for lexile project
Lexile: 430

It seems that quotation marks to indicate speaking is pretty common by lexile level 400, and that's evident in this one, too. Harder words and more complex sentences are evident as we change tenses pretty often.

Recommends it for: young children

The youngest member of the household has been able to read this one by themselves for some time but they are a fan of fluffy chicks and being read to, so this time the child asked that I read the text aloud. Cuddles, and cooing about fluffy chicks, ensued.

I’m not sure if I would have trusteed Spalt with 12 chick eggs, but Miss Wimpledimple did.

Son para niños, pero qué les diré, amo a los gatos y éste me recuerda a los míos. Es una serie infantil muy hermosa.
Stephanie Tournas
Splat the Cat wins the draw to take home the class pets: twelve chicken eggs. He makes them cozy in a dresser drawer and goes to sleep. When he wakes up the next morning, the chicks have hatched and Splat has to find them as they get into mischief all around his bedroom. Silly exploits abound as Splat tries to gather up all the chicks and get them back to school. One and two syllable words, assonance, and alliteration, combined with cute drawings of a cat make this a humorous adventure new reade ...more
