Splat the Cat: Christmas Countdown by Rob Scotton- OPTIONAL

Scotton, Rob. Splat the Cat: Christmas Countdown, Board Book. Harper Festival, 2015. $6.99.  Splat the Cat is very excited about Christmas. He decides to put up a tree on Christmas Eve so that Santa has enough space to put all of the presents. The tree takes awhile to decorate, but Splat eventually gets it done so that he can wrap up all of his presents. When Christmas morning comes, he is not disappointed to find that Santa has come through and has seen what a good cat Splat has been this year. This is a touch and feel book, with textures to touch on each page. As with all Splat books, the illustrations are great, but with this one the textures are a little sparse. The storyline isn’t top notch either, but true Splat lovers will likely appreciate this small addition. PRE-K- OPTIONAL. Reviewed by Shay, School Librarian
