" A look at the similarities and differences in several types of cats. The idea can be applied to any group of similar creatures or to situations. I like how it's presented as one, but is applicable to many. " said.

" I am sure that you could use this for a nice message about "we are more alike than we seem," but my cats would respond with the same gesture they use for covering things in their litter box. Just read this and enjoy it.It's delightful. " said.

" This is a cute story of a cat proving itself to a bunch of big cats that it is part of the family. There is comparing and contrasting as the big cats say what makes them a cat, and why the house cat is thus not one. House cat makes his stand though and says how he is all those same things, just tiny. It's cute. " said.

"How can you not love Simon the gray tabby cat! Even on the cover of Bernstein's book, Simon sits in front of a puma, leopard and puma like he's the boss. He's got cat-itude. He's not going to let these predators keep him from joining in, even when they try to dissuade him that he is not a cat like them. They laugh at him at first and then each one explains what makes them a cat.

But Simon is very clever. He understands how the cats share the same traits, but he also sees the difference that make them each unique as well.

I just love this picture book.

Hello, friends! Our book today is the silly and simple I Am A Cat by Galia Bernstein, a delightful tale of what makes us different and what makes us the same.

A smallish, tubby gray housecat meets with a group of big cats (consisting of a lion, a cheetah, a puma, a panther, and a tiger), and introduces himself as one of their own. The five beasts stare a moment, then break into uproarious laughter. They all insist that the little tabby can’t be a cat for various reasons: Lion claims that he must have a mane, Cheetah notes his lack of sleekness and speed, Panther says he must come from the jungle, and so on. But Cat points out a flaw in this logic – none of them share these traits, so how does that prove that they are all cats? The big cats explain that while they may have many differences, some things are the same, such as their rounded, perky ears and long whiskers and claws. Cat shows them that he has these things as well, just smaller. And after a moment’s consideration, the big cats realize their mistake. “You’re a cat!” they proclaim, and everyone spends the day pouncing, pawing and, of course, napping together.

Cheerful and marvelously fun. Any child who is a fan of cats – big or small – will love the way the story connects housecats to their larger and more wild brethren. There’s also a nice, subtle lesson to be learned in looking for the things that unite, rather than divide, us from others. The illustrations are adorable, realistic enough to show the natural similarities in the cats yet cartoonish enough to make them cuddly and non-threatening. The length was good and JJ enjoyed it, so we can definitely call this one Baby Bookworm approved!

" An absolute delight! The illustrations and storyline remind one of the classic animated shorts from The Wonderful World of Disney. Share this one with cat lovers young and old! " said.

" Why are none of the cats specifically gendered as female? Lol. What an omission when talking about difference. " said.

" I know at least five cat lovers off the top of my head who would find this picture book adorable. the illustrations are fantastic and expressive. Bless chubby, tenacious Simon! " said.
