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)

Vanvlieta This book does have an element of sadness to it as it shows the life cycle. This story would best be taught using UDL principles 2.1(clarify vocabulary and symbols) 3.1(activate or supply background knowledge)& 3.3(Guide information processing visualization and manipulation)& ESOL strategies 1(use pre-reading activities to activate former knowledge)& 5(check frequently for understanding) http://www.adlit.org/strategies/23274/ #UCFLAE3414SP21 🐱 2y

DrSpalding Your cat is adorable and I would definitely tear up! I am a cat lover and have a 16-year-old cat along with a one-year-old! I‘m adding this book to my stack. 2y

This book won a Caldecott Honor award for its interesting illustrations. They are nothing too crazy, but their beauty is in the simplicity that draws your attention. The images also really animate the easy to follow text.

I would use this in my future classroom because it is incredibly cute and really easy to follow along with. It is simple, but not too simple to where the children would be disengaged.

“The cat showed the new cat what to do, when to eat, when to drink...“ I thought this was a cute quote that shows how the big cat takes the new little cat under his wing.

This award winner uses an interesting technique the grabs the readers' attention. Even though there is not a lot of color the bold text and the use of drawings will keep the readers engaged.

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

Until the day a new cat came. The cat showed the new cat what to do.

I‘ve never read this book but I thought it was super cute. It‘s definitely a feel good book and tells a very sad but truthful story of friendship. This could be used to if a child is upset about the death of a pet.

This book is very interesting because all of the illustrations are in black and white. There‘s multiple illustrations on every page and they take up the entire page. It‘s a very cute story of friendship.

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.

A rare side by side size comparison of our big cat (2 y/o 17 lbs) and our little cat (12 y/o 9lbs). She (the little one) doesn‘t really like him, so I don‘t get too many of them together. #catsoflitsy

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

4⭐️ This is a cats life cycle in its simplest terms. It is sad but also happy. It‘s for when a beloved furry family member passes on.

I had plans for several posts and much reading this weekend but my fabulous husband surprised me with this guy on Saturday. Meet Gipper! He‘s 8 years old and had been at the shelter for two years! He‘s very sweet and has a deep and lovely purr. He‘s currently spending most of his time in the guest room while we work at introducing him to our other cats so I‘ve been dividing time between hanging with him and loving on our other two. #newcatsoflitsy

I wanted to say a big Thank You All for the kind words over the passing of my kitty Oakley. For now, I am spending lots of time with my two remaining cat babies, giving as much love and snuggles as they want since they surely miss their sister as well. 😿

(I am very bad at mass tagging, hence this post, and admire anyone who does it!)

I haven‘t been on Litsy much this past week. Last Sunday I came down with a nasty bug and spent the day in bed. My hubby came in at kitty dinner time to tell me that he found our first baby cat Oakley taking her final nap. She was 14 years old but I thought she would live forever. She had been losing weight but showed no outward signs of illness other than some old age lethargy. I am happy she is at peace but so very sad that she is gone.
