I Am a Cat by Galia Bernstein (Author)
I Am a Cat, illustrated and written by Galla Bernstein, is about a small house cat comparing itself to various jungle cats. While some are stronger, brighter, bigger and faster than the house cat, they do all share many feline qualities. The story not only does a great job of highlighting differences, it brings it all back around to recognize similarities. For the intended age group, it provides a double-dose of awesome. The text is perfect for beginning readers, while the concepts are so important for an early grade-school audience already preoccupied with where they fit in compared to their peers. A fun read, important concept, and beautifully illustrated, this one merits two paws up!
