ADK Librarian1/22/15| RebeccaI bought a copy of this book for my library (I'm a librarian for a K-6 school) after seeing the author at a conference. I truly love this unique and clever book, and now I buy it for every baby gift and memorial donation. Not only are the graphic illustrations fun and adorable, but the book also teaches kids about different sounds animals make as well as different font styles. Each picture includes hidden letters blended into the drawing spelling out the sound the animal makes. I use this book in the library for teaching younger students animal sounds and letters (they love the game of finding the hidden words and writing them on a white board!), and for teaching older students about onomatopoeia. It is rare to find one book that can be enjoyed in so many ways! I can't wait to see more from this author.
An Absolute Winner
An Absolute Winner1/22/15| Anna CroslandI thought I'd found winner when I started reading this book in the bookstore and knew it for sure when I shared it with my students. The clear and engaging illustrations show a great humour that the kids picked up on immediately. They were all over figuring out the words in the pictures and loved the way the letters and different fonts created features on the shapes. Each animal showed such character; just look at that cat eyeing that plump mouse. I shared this book with students from Kindergarten to Grade 4. The older students were inspired to create their own art and the younger ones loved imitating the animal sounds as we read. Great choice for any home library and sure to be a favourite. - Elementary School Teacher/Librarian

A must-have if ever there were one!1/21/15| GloriaUtterly and uniquely charming for adults and children alike! Several friends bought this book to give to grandchildren or other children in their lives for Christmas, and another exclaimed, "Oh, I SO wish I had someone to buy this for!" Needless to say, ALL my grandchildren have this book and LOVE it! So do I. ;-) Bravo, Michael Arndt, for your amazing creativity.

Unique!1/21/15| MichaelA brilliantly conceived little book that goes beyond the ordinary realms of what a children's book should be.
Sure to become a classic!
What a terrific book!
What a terrific book!1/21/15| HP314Cat Says Meow is such a creative and fun book; and it's not just for children! Anyone who appreciates simplicity and design will love this book. The way in which the sound an animal makes forms the various body parts of the animal is ingenious. Each time I go back and reread Cat Says Meow, which I have done numerous times, I find something new that I did not notice before. I have purchased this book for all my friends with babies and young children, and every time the reaction is the same. Their kids love the book and enjoy interacting with the shapes and sounding out the animal sounds. And, they too, as parents and adults, love the illustrations and design. Cat Says Meow is a must for every bookshelf from the baby's room to the home library!
