Review of My Dog, My Cat

People always talk about the differences between cats and dogs. In the book My Dog, My Cat by Ashlee Fletcher, the narrator tells the difference between her cat and dog - physical characteristics, favorite activities, typical dog and cat behaviors. Cats and dogs can also be quite similar, though. At the end of the book, the child says that both her cat and dog like pepperoni pizza and her!

Any child who has a dog and a cat can relate to this story. Readers may wish to create their own version and to discuss how their cats and dogs are the same as or different than those in the book. This book can also be a launchpad for other discussions about "same" and "different."

Illustrations are very cartoonish, with bright colors that will attract the child's eye. They are also all framed in thick squiggly lines to emphasize similarities and differences. Print is in bold, which makes it easy for children to see and to read. It's short and sweet.

You can also download it for your Kindle.

I received an eARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
