Board book: How To Be A Cat

How To Be A Cat. Nikki McClure. 2013/2019. Abrams. 30 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence: Stretch.

Premise/plot: The little kitten that stars in How To Be A Cat has a LOT to learn, but she has a good teacher. Each spread of this board book--originally a picture book--features just ONE word. But somehow, someway there still manages to be a story conveyed.

My thoughts: I love, love, love cats. The black and white illustrations are striking, engaging, and expressive. The illustrations are at the heart of this simple story.
