This is Galia Bernstein’s debut book and it’s just gorgeous.
Need a present for a kiddy-cat-lover? Look no further.
Simon thinks he’s a cat. But Lion, Cheetah, Puma, Panther and Tiger disagree.
Can Simon convince the big cats they are all more alike than they seem?
Reasons we ❤️ this book:
1/ It encourages children to take a closer look at the world around them.
Simon the domestic tabby cat takes the reader on a journey through a range of different cats. It looks at characteristics that make up cats, it also shows us how each cat is different and then goes through their similarities. Just because most are big and Simon the household cat is small, it doesn’t mean they’re not part of the same family! Take a closer look and you will see!
2/ It’s educational.
If you have a cat lover in the house, this book is a great way to show them that your domestic tabby comes from a much larger (and more exotic) family. It points out all the cats differences, but highlights the similarities (sharp claws, eyes that see in the dark, likes hunting etc).
3/ It teaches children to enjoy their individuality!
Sure, some cats are big, some are small… some are tall, some are short – just like humans! We are all from the same species, but all of us have many differences that make us unique. It’s good to celebrate diversity!
For ages 3+.
