Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 4
Genre: Board book
What did you like about the book? Lovely mellow colors and fun flaps to turn distinguish these cute board books. Someone is eating Cat’s cakes. By turning the flap, the cake itself cleverly becomes the animal – sheep, dog, snake, or bear – who is eating the cake. At the end there is a surprise: a birthday cake for Cat.. In addition to the yumminess of the sweets, the creativity of the sweet becoming an animal will delight kids. Simple and adorable.
Anything you didn’t like about it? No
To whom would you recommend this book? For babies and young children who like interactive books.
Who should buy this book? Day cares and public libraries, and especially those with a Spanish language collection.
Where would you shelve it ? Board books
Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No
