Review: Big Cat, Small Cat by Ami Rubinger


SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:
Big Cat, Small Cat takes readers through a fantastical world of felines where they will encounter many different pairs of cats, from good and bad to happy and sad. The book's sing-song text leaves out the last word of each page, allowing little ones to chime in and complete the rhyme. Captivating, colorful illustrations provide clues for the words that have been left out. Introducing words like "dirty," "clean," "nice," and "mean," Big Cat, Small Cat teaches children about rhyming and opposites with a fun, fill-in-the-blank challenge that encourages participation.
MY TAKE:

I was intrigued by the idea of a children's book that was part activity book too.

Big Cat, Small Cat is a children's book wherein kids are shown drawings of cats that are opposites (big, small, short, ..., etc.). The fourth adjective is left blank for kids to fill in.

It's such a cute idea! This way, kids can actively participate while their parents read to them. It's also a great way for kids to learn new words.

Thanks to NetGalley and Abbeville Kids for the e-ARC.

THE GOOD:
  1. It's imaginative.
  2. Kids will have lots of fun with this one.
  3. It's educational.
THE BAD:
  1. Some people might not be a fan of the illustration style.
FAVORITE QUOTE/S:
This cat is dark
This cat is fair
This cat is here
This cat is...
READ IT IF:
  1. You're looking for a children's book that you can read with your child.
  2. You like activity books.
  3. You or your child likes cats.
