Big Cat, Small Cat

By Ami Rubinger

Big Cat, Small Cat takes readers through a fantastical world of felines, where they will encounter many different pairs of catsGÇöfrom good and bad to happy and sad. The bookGÇÖs sing-song text leaves out the last word of each page, allowing little ones to chime in and complete the rhyme. Captivating, colorful illustrations provide clues for the words that have been left out. Introducing words like GÇ£dirty,GÇ¥ GÇ£clean,GÇ¥ GÇ£nice,GÇ¥ and GÇ£mean,GÇ¥ Big Cat, Small Cat teaches children about rhyming and opposites with a fun, fill-in-the-blank challenge that encourages participation.
The illustrations by accomplished illustrator and cartoonist Ami Rubinger are charming and unique, depicting a variety of humorous cats that will engage young and old readers alike. With its message of acceptance, Big Cat, Small Cat evokes compassion for animals and presents an important lesson in diversity: catsGÇölike peopleGÇöcome in many different shapes, sizes, and personalities. Beyond its wide general appeal, this book will interest children who have pets and all animal lovers.
