Love these books for their teaching quality, however, I have noticed, the author tries to over simplify, and it sometimes comes across in reading aloud as a fleeting thought...SQUIRREL!....sort of read. Still, my kids love them.
You really have to see to appreciate. These books are a hoot!! Six year old gransons love them. Must say I enjoy reading them over and over. The illustartions are fun to take the time to look at and let the kids point out things in. Just a great kids' book!
If you have never read any of the Splat the Cat books you are truly missing out. These books by Rob Scotton have been some of my favorite since my youngest Avery was in kindergarten and continue to still be a huge hit in our household. The artwork is filled with softened edges giving it a glowing essence of life all its own. This is what originally drew me in and got me hooked.Splat is a vividly drawn black plumpy cat who has to deal with the topics of life that every child will deal with sooner or later. However, Splat never has to deal with anything alone as he has a very trusted friend, Seymour, who is a mouse, who is always there for Splat when he needs a friend most.In this particular book, Splat wants to do something special for his friend Seymour to cheer him up; who so gallantly sticks by his side through all of the crazy shenanigans he seems to get into. While anybody could go out and buy a thank you card, Splat does one better and decides to make Seymour a Thank You book! In it he recaps all of the wonderful adventures their friendship has taken them together. Will this book be just what the doctor ordered?While all of the Splat books eventually can be found through Scholastic and on in paperback for fairly cheap, I highly recommend just buying the bigger and hardier hardback copy as this book will get read so many times and you don't want to wear it out. If you have yet to discover the life of Splat, don't wait!
Splat is my son's new favorite character. This is our first Splat book, which is completely out of order because this particular book is a recap of their many adventures together. The message is sweet. Splat wants to make his best friend smile. There are a couple instances where I chuckled. Splat is very much the friend you love for no good reason, then he gives you a really good one. The illustrations are fun, sometimes downright lovely. The text is basic, but read the right way, it could be fun for the non-four year old too. 4STARS because my little one picks Splat over all our other books and I feel a trend coming on.
Everyone loves "Splat"!!! All children relate to splat and think he is really awesome and do not even realize that he is teaching them to use their manners such as "Thank you".
My son is 5 and he loves his other Splat the Cat books. This one I thought was going to show how to be polite and say Thank you, but it is not able to be a fun book for a 5 year old.
I love all the Splat the Cat books. This one is every bit as good as the first in the series. All young children (and their grandparents!) will love reading these stories.
Ordered this for my daughter's classroom. Her students love Splat the Cat. Good addition to her library. Quick delivery. Will order again.
