About this deal

Lots of friends know how much I love to read, but this is not quite so for master Indy (almost 4, the little rascal). Each talented cat is followed by an amusing picture of what the narrator’s cat gets up to in his spare time (I think we all know a cat like this! Lynley Dodd graduated from the Elam School of Art in Auckland with a diploma in Fine Arts, majoring in sculpture. Great book, fun rhymes, but best of all - simple, fun and easily engaging for those impressionable 3 year olds.

Not only is cardboard an amazing insulator, but the small space that boxes offer encourages your cat to curl up and relax, making it a comfy, warm space. The ideal temperature for cats to be comfortable is around 37 °C, so being warm is very important for your feline. In this article we explore why cats like boxes and tell you all about why they make the perfect snoozing and hunting ground for your cat.We also use them to help detect unauthorized access or activity that violate our terms of service, as well as to analyze site traffic and performance for our own site improvement efforts.

I'm including this book as part of my story time assessment for my Diploma, and if my experience here at home is anything to go by, I might do well! It introduces cats from all over the world – fancy felines from France and suave cats from Spain – but all are eclipsed by the narrator's cat who likes to hide in boxes.We work closely with publishers and authors to ensure that we offer the best books on the market for your child. I’d probably teach this book to pre-K-1st grade students as they can enjoy a simple cat book while learning about other countries and rhyming words.

She introduces extravagant characters, while not falling into the trap of representing any negative stereotypes. I believe for the very young cat lover it will be funny as well as an education tool to learn the names of different places around the globe (avoid the audio book with a singing version: it is annoying).

The opinions expressed are mine and no monetary compensation was offered to me by the author or publisher. My granfchildren loved this book, but we only had one copy, so now that they want it for their own children I have been looking for used copies. We at Penguin Random House Australia acknowledge that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are the Traditional Custodians and the first storytellers of the lands on which we live and work. A recent study conducted by the University of Utrecht recently discovered another reason why cats love boxes.

These two qualities of art work very well together in this piece to make the reader know that this really doesn’t happen. We honour Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' continuous connection to Country, waters, skies and communities. It’s a great book to read aloud to children, they immediately pick up on the repetition and join in reading the story.Cats from many different countries may like to do all kinds of strange and exotic things like fly aeroplanes, or sing and dance, or even play the violin but this cat, an ordinary round-the-house cat, likes to hide in boxes. The personalities of each cat are wonderfully captured, and the illustrations are imaginative, funny, and sweet. After the readers are told about the cats across the world, they are reminded that the narrators cat likes to hide in boxes. The story sees many cats from lots of different countries doing amazing things and these are juxtaposed each time with the narrator's cat who only likes to hide in boxes. And a great shared story that can inspire artwork about family cat pets and other worldly cats since even zoo large cats seem to love boxes too.
