Cat Got a Lot by Steve Henry- OPTIONAL

Henry, Steve. Cat Got a Lot, PICTURE BOOK. Holiday House, 2015. $14.95. Cat goes out and gets items that all of his neighbors will want on his way to the grocery to pick himself up some fish to eat. He makes all of his neighbors happy and that makes him happy too. This is any early reader book. With simple words, there is a lot of repetition of the vocabulary which is pretty typical in this style of book. The story relies heavily on the pictures to make sense. The problem with that is that the pictures are really convoluted. I had difficulty seeing details and focusing on the parts that the author probably wanted highlighted to see what the point of the cat’s travels were. PRE-K- OPTIONAL.
