5.0 out of 5 stars A great intro to animals and the joy of pretend play, June 15, 2000
This review is from: Pretend You're a Cat (Picture Puffins) (Paperback)
My daughter and I both love this one. The rhymes suggest simple ways to pretend to be an animal and always leave room for the imagination with "what else can you do like a cat?" questions. The illustrations are charming in their portrayal of children engaged in pretend play. They are also multicultural in a natural, low-key way. I think this would be great to read to a group of children in a pre-school classroom.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Artwork, Nice Book - a review of "Pretend You're A Cat", March 31, 2006
This review is from: pretend you're a cat (Paperback)
You can read the entire book at one sitting, or just one or two poems to get those toddler and preschooler creative juices flowing.

This is a lovely book that is a lot of fun for small fry. The poems are very short and are good rhyming practice. Just pause and pretty soon your child will be filling in the blanks.

The book also gets children thinking. What else does a cat, cow, horse... do? Can I do it too? Animals featured are: cat, dog, fish, bee, chick, bird, squirrel, pig, cow, horse, seal, snake, and bear.

Four Stars. [B+]. The artwork by Jerry Pinkney is delicious and ties in wonderfully with the poems. Good read-aloud.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and entertaining rhyming book, September 3, 2008
This review is from: Pretend You're a Cat (Hardcover)
This is a really fun book to read to your baby or toddler. Each page has a fun rhyme about something a certain animal such as a cat, dog, seal, chick does that you might be able to immitate. The illustrations are very nice. It's just a cheerful fun rhyming book--one that your baby will get excited to have you read to him/ her. I recommend this book. Here's an example:
"...Can you root, can you dig, can you snort like a pig?..."
