Review: Up Cat by Hazel Hutchins


SUMMARY FROM ANNICK PRESS:
You’d be surprised at what a cat gets up to all day!

A cat can get tangled up in all kinds of fun and mischief between wake-up time and nap time. Follow along with the playful text as Cat laps up milk, messes up the house, gets up to no good, stands up to a visiting dog, and finally curls up for a nap in the sun.

The expressive, energetic illustrations against simple backgrounds mirror the spare but rhythmic text that teaches about “up” actions while leading the reader through a day in the life of a cat.

Together with UP DOG, this board book will soon be a favorite of toddlers and preschoolers who adore animals.
MY TAKE:

Ah, cats and kittens are so cute!

Up Cat is a picture book showing a cute cat doing things that contain the word "up". The cat is very cute and appropriate to the age group. Since this book is for babies and toddlers, it's composed of mostly phrases. I think it would be nicer if it had a story and they just highlighted the "up" phrase.

Thanks to NetGalley and Annick Press for the e-copy.

THE GOOD:
  1. Cute illustrations.
  2. Who knew there were so many "up" phrases and things to do?
  3. Babies and toddlers will like the illustrations.
THE BAD:
  1. It's composed entirely of phrases.
FAVORITE QUOTE/S:
curl up and soak up the sun
READ IT IF:
  1. You have babies and toddlers who like animals.
  2. Your baby likes colorful drawings.
  3. Your baby is just learning to associate actions and drawings with words.
