"An excellent book for the elementary classroom. The story offers a vast array of tools and study areas to approach lessons about animals, friendship, and diversity. Super Rooster and Wonder Cat is charming and enjoyable with illustrations that jump off of the page!"
—Haley Bright, Kindergarten Teacher
"I adore Alma Hammond's charming story, leading us from familiar animals to a range of critters less known to children. Science is used to lead the reader and listener alike to becoming better informed while being entertained. I'll share this persuasive storytelling experience chock full of masterful illustrations and clever word crafting with as many little people as I can."
—Kat Haber, Climate Activist, Alaskan Naturalist, WILD Advocate and Board Director
"Diversity in society is more prevalent than ever before. What better way than to start educating children to recognize the skills of others who are different from themselves!"
—Shashank Kansal, father and traveler to nearly 100 countries
"I totally enjoyed this delightful story with its charming illustrations. This tale provides a commentary on the world around us today—to get along like the diverse characters in this story, and respect each other's unique skills and talents. Where differences occur, the story quickly emphasizes the willingness of all characters to live together in peace and harmony."
—Marsha Greenfeld, retired primary school teacher and current Senior Facilitator for the National Network of Partnership Schools at Johns Hopkins University
"Super Rooster and Wonder Cat is an entertaining and insightful story that shows children we all have our own special powers to embrace in others and ourselves. The beautifully illustrated book also introduces children to animals and places they may not be familiar with."
—Frances Keiser, author Pelican Pete series

The idea for this couple of friends, a rooster and cat, going to watch sunrise every morning is so amazing. These friends start to tell each other what super powers they have. Then they meet a crab, a strange-looking fish and a shark. First they were afraid these creatures would harm them. But they started talking and learned there was no reason to be afraid. Everybody had her/his own superpowers.
The illustrations are just wonderful, vivid and went so well with the story. I also loved the repetition in the text. I think this is very good for little children, it sounded like a song.
After the story the writer asked some questions to the reader. What superpower they liked the best, what are their own superpowers and what are those from their friends. This is fantastic because it help kids to have extra attention to the morals in this story. The invitation to have a practice to cock-a-doodle-dazzle makes all so playful.
And on top of that, Alma Hammond gives some more fun facts.
This is a topbook for all little ones, and maybe you as adult, will love it just as I did. I’m very convinced to give ‘Super Rooster and Wonder Cat’ 5 stars.
Beautiful illustrations, lively dialogue, and simple text make the tale a good candidate for a read aloud or bedtime story. Discussion questions following the tale ask children about their own superpowers, those of friends, and how they might use them.
I highly recommend sharing this book with kids of all ages.
Beautiful illustrations enhance the story page by page. At the end are some fun facts of the sea creatures rooster and cat encounter, a great learning device.
