REVIEW: ABC Cats: An Alpha-Cat Book by Lesléa Newman, illustrated by Isabella Kung
A beguiling array of felines from A to Z makes learning the alphabet the cat’s pajamas.
Adorable cat with eyes of gold.
Baby cat just two weeks old.
From curious to elegant, grouchy to inquisitive, rowdy to tangled to…well, unusual (who says cats don’t swim in the tub?), these twenty-six charming felines interact with oversize alphabet letters on rhyming spreads. Author Lesléa Newman and illustrator Isabella Kung offer a cat’s-eye concept book that makes the ABCs go down easy—and is sure to inspire many a repeat viewing.
Cat servants will recognize their darling babies in all the actions of these twenty six cats illustrating all the letters of the alphabet. Large and colorful letters will help children learn what those look like while the inventive rhymes use a word starting with that letter (or in the case of “X” uses the sound). Kids might learn a few new words, too, such as finicky, voracious, grouchy, and inquisitive. And cat servants know our kitties are adorable, joyful, and kissable. B
