I like how detailed and thorough this story was. It explains the little boy and the beckoning cats relationship well. The cat helped out the boy so much the others wanted their own beckoning cat

Based on a Japanese folktale, The Beckoning Cat is about a boy who is poor, but still shares his dinner with a cat who shows up on his doorstep. Because of this boy‘s kindness, the cat comes to the rescue when he is in trouble. It is a good example of a common theme told to children, treat others how you want to be treated.

The Beckoning Cat by Rosanne Litzinger, 2009. Traditional Literature. What stuck out the most to me in this book is definitely the illustrations. The illustrations are amazing and really help depict the story well. I enjoyed the use of watercolor in doing so. This book is great as it shows the cat returning kindness to the young boy who was kind to it. I love the message in this book and would definitely recommend it!

I loved this book! I will for sure buy it because I love beckoning cats. It‘s so cool to hear the background on them in picture book form!

The Beckoning Cat by Koko Nishizuka is a traditional story. It was written in 2009. This story was very intriguing for me because I own like 4 or 5 mini beckoning cats! This is a great traditional story because it gives us so much information on Japan and the back story of one of their most famous stories and items. The illustrations were also amazing and really helped increase the enjoyment of the story.

It is a traditional literature book that is considered a Japanese folktale. It gave us insights on beliefs back then. It is about being realistic to show a relative relatedness, however, it takes on other embroidered views to add a spin on things!
