My niece brought Easter Cat to our Easter celebration this year and I think her reading it was as priceless as the book. A cat who is jealous of the Easter bunny’s attention gets some ideas in his head of how to compete for the spotlight. Cats can definitely put up an air of it’s my way or the highway and while I think a dog in this role might’ve been even more fitting, I love this cat and all his antics. I wish my cats would communicate with those signs on sticks. I think they’d get their way even more often than they do. A very fun read (have a little one read it to you for even more laughs!).Available on Amazon

This is one of my all-time favorite hero cat books! What an amazing combination of great words, fun story, and wonderful illustrations. A very clever cat does some amazing thinking to save the day. The farm where Mabel the cat lives has some unusual trees that are under attack by pirates. Mabel defends her territory! This is a must-have for any cat loving parent of a small child: a great addition to the library.
I’m breaking ranks (that’s what you can do with your own posts ;-)…in lieu of book reviews, I’m branching out to gift recommmendations. My goal is always to think about children and the environment above all else. So today, as I’m already fed up with all the commercialism of Christmas, I would love to do my part in supporting some great ideas for the holidays (and beyond). To kick things off, I start with International Cat Care. Not only is this organization promoting the well-being of cats, and the happiness of cat owners, all around the globe, they have made a gorgeous calendar for 2017: it’s a superb gift for any of your cat-loving friends…the theme is cat naps! I am in love with Ms November and Mr August: two centerfolds that could grace my walls beyond 2017 and would still make me smile. There’s something so endearing about my cats while they snooze and, now that I see another 12 of them, I see it isn’t just mine that make me smile as they sleep. See all the products at their online shop. Be prepared for some huge uncontrollable grins to break up the holiday stress!

If you’ve ever lost a cat, Lost Cat may be harder for you to read than the author may think. I will always feel the pain of losing my cat (found alright weeks later) and find it one of the hardest things for me to think about. So, I’m a bit critical just based on my own horror of this situation, but Lost Cat is actually very sweet. A bit haunting for me to look at the cover and think of what my lost cat went through, but I think anyone without that gauge would enjoy this heartwarming story and smiply gorgeous illustrations.read more Available on Amazon
