Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K—This picture book has what every cat person wants—a lot of felines in all their playful, mysterious glory. Mortimer's cats are second to none. Stainton's spare text—"Singing cats,/Swinging cats./Cats that wink,/cats that think./I love cats!"—offers just enough material for the artist, who endows each illustration with more texture and character than one would expect this side of 3-D. The white backgrounds increase the charm of the book by spotlighting the cats. The repetitive, rhyming text, use of opposites, and buoyant pictures make this a good selection for early readers. And with its smooth and easy read-aloud lilt, I Love Cats is perfect for group sharing.—Kara Schaff Dean, Needham Public Library, MA

From Booklist

The unseen narrator likes all kinds of cats, and there are plenty of cats to be seen: big cats, little cats, hairy cats, scaredy-cats. Using an almost photo-realistic technique, Mortimer offers more than two dozen cats to "ooh" and "ahh" over. Most are in typical kitty poses--frolicking, snuggling, tumbling--though some images move into the fantastical: a cool cat wearing sunglasses. The text is brief: one adjective followed by the word cat. Occasionally the cats look as if they have been cut and pasted onto the background, but it will take practiced eyes to discern that. Pair this with Kittens! Kittens! Kittens! by Susan Meyers (2007) for maximum catness. Ilene Cooper

My five year old loves this book so much I thought I'd review it here. It's a really nice picture book showing different kinds of cats. The illustrations are very well done and the cats shown are both funny and adorable. This is a great book for families who have both cats and kids!

The book itself is wonderful! My 4 year old daughter is obsessed with cats and loves the real-life illustrations, since we can't actually own a cat because of my husband's allergy these let her imagination run wild :) and it is a fairly large size. Only problem I had was that the cover sleeve was torn on the bottom in the middle but that may have been a seller or packaging issue, hard to say- it was difficult to open, so I may have torn it myself...either way, we LOVE it the book!

Beautiful pictures - the illustrator knows cats! I bought this for my daughter when she was 3. This was her favorite book for over a year and ended up being the first book she read aloud - she loved the book so much and the rhyming, sing-song pattern of the words was very easy for her to pick up after hearing it read a number of times. I highly recommend this for all cat families.
