"And so it happened that every time the very old man looked up, he saw another cat which was so pretty he could not bear to leave it, and before he knew it, he had chosen them all."

This book is a very old picture books that‘s about an old couple finding the perfect cat for their lonely home. The illustrations are older and blotchy, but add to the authenticity of the book.

This book is interesting and would be used in my future classroom if we were talking about family and pets.

This f Newbery award winner would be awesome for RA! It‘s about a man who sets off on a journey to find a cat for his wife to love. On this journey he runs into millions of cats to find the perfect one. UDL strategy 3.1 supply background knowledge & ESOL 17 providing contextual support would be wonderful options to pair with the book linked for comprehension. #LAE3414sp19

DrSpalding This is a classic. Read aloud works beautifully for this particular picture book. 10mo

The book uses the color black to distinguish between the lake being full of water and empty. This happened because an old man and women wanted a kitten but the old man couldn‘t just pick one from the million cats.

Maggie, Franklin, and Teensy. 3 of my brood of 11 furry babies!!! @TaylorMay

Texreader They look exhausted! I️ love how cats can just flat wear out and melt where they land. 2y
Nutmegnc It's a tough life for the babies in the kitty kingdom 🙀 (aka my finished basement). So many toys. So little time (not napping) 💤 @Texreader 2y
TaylorMay Omg that is amazing! It took me a second to find the 3rd baby under the other 2! Thank you so much for your very kind words and #LitsyLove. Give every one of those 11 babies a big hug from me 💙 2y

Millions of Cats
This TL picture book is a Newberry award winning in 1928. It is about an old married couple who lived in a small house surrounded by flowers, but they felt very lonely. The wife requested that the husband to go out and bring back the prettiest cat so they wouldn't be so lonely. The husband could not decide on which cat was the cutest so he ends up bringing hundreds home!

MarinaForsythe At the end of the book, they ended up with the best prettiest cat. This would be a great S book for a class because it is a cute, old tale on cats-which most kids love! The UDL strategy 1.3, using alternatives for visual information and EL strategy 13 would be good during a storytelling. http://www.scholastic.com/browse/collateral.jsp?id=36051 the link is a discussion guide you can use to start discussions with your class. 2y
DrSpalding This is a classic! When I see kittens, I want to bring them all home myself. Children enjoy this story and your resource can help you capitalize on the discussion that would take place surrounding it. 2y
MadisonCarter I‘ve always wanted to buy this book, but I never knew the summary. Just love anything about cats and knew it was a classic. Now that I know the summary... 😍😭 I don‘t want it, I NEED this book. Great choice & post! 2y

This TL book is about and old woman who wanted a fluffy cat. Her husband found millions of cats on the side of a hill and brought them all home, but then realized they couldn't feed every cat. The old man asked the cats which was the prettiest, and only one didn't think they were pretty. The old man and woman took in the "ugly" cat and made it pretty like the others! http://www.scholastic.com/browse/collateral.jsp?id=36051 #UCFLAE3414sp17

DrSpalding The theme of self esteem is important. I like how the guide suggests other books with the same theme. What kind of fiction? Use your guide.❤️📚 3y
BrielleR I love the theme of this book!!! 3y

#24in48 - Books 5 and 6. Probably the most violent book we'll read (or ever written), but Jane and I love it. Giraffes Can't Dance is a nice feel-good chaser. Paired with Cheetos (or as Jane calls them "Cheesy Noodles").

So, this never made any sense. The cats couldn't literally all devour each other until there was nothing left. Shouldn't there have been, like, one really really fat cat left at the end of the fight?

Carol Another nonsensical award-winner. 😂 4y

kdwinchester I love this book. 4y
todd Who made the biggest mistake here, the very old man who thought billions of cats could live in their yard, or the very old woman for suggesting the cats fight it out to decide which one will stay? Yet I still love reading it to my three year old. 4y
