Big Cat likes to nap—but his family has other ideas in this Guided Reading Level A story, simple enough for young readers to understand on their own!
A pair of rowdy siblings wake their furry friend up to play, and proceed to carry him around the house—no matter how the cat feels about it. They love Big Cat, and it's clear Big Cat loves them, too. . . . even if he doesn't love flying or playing dress-up. His cartoonishly exagerrated expressions are sure to charm.
With five words or less per page, this story is simple enough to be the first book a child reads on their own—and funny enough to become a favorite. Geisel Medalist Ethan Long's illustrations of the big-bellied feline and his enthusiastic human pals bring Big Cat's adventures to life. Big Cat can be fun—and reading can be fun, too!
