FRIDAY BOOK SHARING!
They All Saw a Cat is my new favorite picture book! I keep returning to it every day, reading and noticing something new on each page. This book is all about the power of perception and observation. What a beautiful celebration of the imagination! What do you see on each page? A cat makes his way through the world, and along the way, different animals see the cat. The perspective of each animal influences how they see the cat, which leads to magnificent, thought-provoking illustrations. Every animal sees the cat through their own eyes. Finally, the cat sees his own reflection in the water, yet another interpretation of the cat. Yes, they all saw a cat. This is a book that teachers will reach for again and again, as the possibilities are endless, both with younger and older readers. Point of view, inferential thinking, visual literacy. This is your book! A brilliant book for so many of these reasons. And above all, a fun book to read and enjoy!
