FOUR OF THE BEST KITTY PICTURE BOOKS EVER will bring laughter linked to learning back into your classroom! The BOOKS include:

WON TON, A Cat Tale Told in Haiku by Lee Wardlaw

KITTEN'S FIRST FULL MOON, Caldecott Winner by Kevin Henkes

BAD KITTY by Nic Bruel

SPLAT THE CAT # 1 (her first day of school) by Rob Scotton


WON TON, A Cat Tale Told in Haikuby Lee Wardlaw

He was a Siamese cat in an animal shelter. He had everything he needed. Everything except a home.

In Haiku:

I'm a Siamese cat
In an animal shelter.
I need a good home.

He had given up on anyone choosing to take HIM home, and frankly, he wasn't sure he even wanted to go home with any of the cruel, tail-pulling hands. But, there is THAT boy. Will he choose ME?

In Haiku:

I want a good boy,
One who doesn't pull my tail.
Dare I even hope?

Won-Ton is the story of a homeless cat who gets adopted by THAT boy. Won-Ton, himself, tells his story, in the voice of the fearful, playful, picky, silly cat he is. Written in the 5-7-5 syllable Haiku pattern, his clever, funny story will make you want to tell the story of YOUR pet in Haiku, too.

What will his teacher, Mrs. Wimpydimple say when she sees him?
What kinds of lessons will she teach? Will she mind if he asks WHY a lot?
