Days went by-and months, too-and the little cat grew and grew and grew.
This cute story shares the importance of family, friendships, and new beginnings.
Big Cat, Little Cat was written and illustrated by Elisha Cooper and published in 2017. This book won the Caldecott Honor in 2018. This book shares the story of a family adopting a kitten and how the older cat welcomes it into the family. This book highlights the importance of friendship and the cycle of life.
This Caldecott honor book would be great for PR. The short sentences makes it easy for partners to read every other line. This precious (RF) story is about an older cat who gets a new kitty sibling who he teaches everything too, until one day the older cat passes on & leaves the younger cat with his wisdom to share with future siblings down the road. (Not going to lie, this book made me tear up... lol)
I think this is a great book for children who are just beginning to read on their own. The pictures, language, and storyline are very simple, allowing children to focus on the words they are reading. Because it is so simple, children will likely want to read this book over and over again!
“Big Cat, Little Cat“ by Elisha Cooper, 2017. Caldecott Honor Award. This is a very cute story about two cats becoming friends. The illustrations are very simple yet aesthetically pleasing. One cat is all white, while the other is all black, contrasting each other. The words and pictures are scattered all across the page, setting it apart from traditional picture books.
#AnglophileApril Day 18: This is a seemingly-simple story of a Big White Cat welcoming a tiny, tentative Black Cat to the household – showing him what to do, getting him essentially acclimatized to their new home with a #LetYouLoveMe vibe. There is grief, yes, as only fierce and true love brings – but it is part of what makes our days full .. and worth living. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-hvS
This book did a wonderful job explaining the circle of life for young readers. I LOVED how the big cat explained what to do for the small cat, and then by the end the small cat had turned into the big cat. Fantastic simple illustrations throughout.
My big cat Thor (13 lbs) is actually the 3-year-old and my little cat Petunia (8 lbs) is the 4-year-old. Isn‘t it amazing how much we grow to love our fur babies?
This has quickly become one of my new favorite picture books. A simple story with simple illustrations (almost more scribble and lines than anything) somehow cut right to the heart. A story about life and renewal as well as dealing with loss. This will surely pull at your heart and be a good conversation starter with children learning about tough subjects
Sweet, simple story that deals with the circle of life, with cats. It is almost perfection. But there is one major thing that kept me from giving this five stars. Instead of saying the older cat died, the author says it went away and didn‘t come back. And then, that was hard until the day they got a new cat. So that definitely could have been worded better, even if I don‘t think the author meant to imply that the older kitty was replaceable.
This 2018 Caldecott award winning (F) picture book is written and illustrated by: Elisha Cooper. This book is about a cat who lived alone. Until the day a new cat came and so a story of friendship begins for days, months, and years. But one day... 😩 This book is amazing ! TS: GR, IR, and RA. #UCFLAE3414SP18
