What does a cat want in a best friend?
Cats want their best friend (YOU) to treat them with consideration, courtesy, thoughtfulness and respect as well.
Wendy Wahman knows what cats want in their best friend and conveys this charmingly through her words and vibrantly colored, endearing illustrations.
"A Cat Like That" is geared towards children ages 3 to 8, however I have known adults who are so clueless when it comes to how to relate to a cat, that they certainly would benefit from reading it as well.
"A Cat Like That" would make a superb bedtime story. The message of how to approach and behave towards a cat is certain to start a dialogue between the child and whomever shares this story with him. The message of treating an animal (in this case a cat) with respect, thoughtfulness and consideration won't be lost when the lights are turned out and the child is cozily tucked in their bed, rather, it is a message that will be remembered and hopefully put into practice during childhood and beyond.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: WENDY WAHMAN lives in Washington State with big poodles, old cats and a husband named Joe. She has won many awards for illustration, but her greatest joy is loving the two, three and four-legged animals she has known. My Sheltie, Dakota, reviewed her first children's book:

I was not compensated in any way for this review. I was given "A Cat Like That" to read and review. All opinions are solely my own.
