The joys of giving and receiving are celebrated in this easy-to-read Level B story.
On a cold day, a shivering cat jumps through the basement window of a small apartment building. Inside he meets Rat, who shows him upstairs. Along the way, Cat meets everyone in the building—and each of his new, welcoming neighbors has a gift to share.
When he reaches the top, Cat finds a place of his own. Cat is happy!
Cutaway illustrations of the apartment building, filled with the characters' cozy homes, give young readers plenty of details to pore over, and the spare text is simple enough for beginners to read on their own.
The award-winning I Like to Read® series focuses on guided reading levels A through G, based upon Fountas and Pinnell standards.

Level B books, suitable for kindergarten readers, feature short sentences and high-frequency words. The illustrations provide clues to word meanings. When Level B is mastered, follow up with Level C.
