Eric Carle is a classic for a reason. He has knowledge about child development and early literacy. Most negative reviews on this book are adults claiming the book is boring....of course it is! This is actually a great book for young children's reading development. This may just be the first book your child will successfully read on their own. With short and repetative text that can be memorized, it can help teach early concepts about print. And what kids don't love a slide out book? I have ordered 3 copies of this book and plan to give them as gifts.
My newly 2 year old daughter is obsessed w this book. Sometimes I hide it because mama gets tired of it ha! She likes pulling out the cats and pushing them back in. Plus it teaches them basic simple language that’s why it’s perfect for toddlers learning to talk & build their vocabulary. It’s repetitive which is key in learning at this age.

She used the book so much eventually the pullouts were damaged therefore against my better judgment (joke) I’m ordering her a replacement tonight. It’s extremely inexpensive for a board book so I don’t mind. We certainly got our money’s worth w the first book.
I usually like Eric Carle's books but this one falls short. Basically every page is "have you seen my cat? That's not my cat." It doesn't even tell you what type of cat is in the actual picture. I wouldn't recommend.
This book is adorable. Yes the words are very simple (I have pretty much memorized it). However, the illustrations show so much more of the story. We talk about all the different cats (lion, bobcat, mountain lion, leopard, panther, cheetah, tiger, long haired domestic (probably Persian), and his cat is a short haired domestic gray tiger (like ours is) with 6 kittens (which we like to count)) We also talk about the other animals in the book (horse, donkey, camel, squirrel, etc). And we do the signs for "cat" and "bird". We also sometimes talk about the people in the book. She loves looking at the pictures and talking about the "kittys".

UPDATE: I wrote this review when my daughter was almost 18 months. Now at 4 she still loves this book. She 'reads' it, knows all the different big cats, and has picked her Halloween costumes from it this year (panther) and last year (cheetah).
My daughter enjoys this book but I find it annoying to read. It’s a cute concept but I find it really repetitive. It’s just about a boy looking all over for his cat. The same line repeats over and over.

The pictures are nice though.
A little busy in the illustration however love the fact it’s repeative for early language learners. And that’s key.
Kids really enjoy the book but the pull out tabs aren’t in secure enough. The first time reading the book almost all got pulled all the way out and now just fall out. I have other books with the same feature that have held up fine so I don’t think it was us.
My grandson's favorite book. He started loving it at 12 months old.... He keeps saying "where, where,where?" & laughs. He is now 18 Mos old. He still loves the book.Especially the pullout page....
