P is for Purr

I have always been a lover of alphabet books. They’re simplistic yet many times contain a wealth of information as does P is for Purr! Each letter, from A to Z, gets a full two- page spread. The illustrations are stunning; I love the big eyes on all the cats. There are 2-3 sentences for each letter of the alphabet. In addition, there is a spy glass with a paw print that gives additional information. This book can be enjoyed by those learning their alphabet as well as those who love all things feline. The final page is a bibliography that provides websites related to each of the 26 topics.  Amazon reviewer Carole Gerber, illus. by Susan Covelli. Familius, $18.99, 52 pp., ISBN 979-64170-741-1


Each letter of the alphabet tells us something about cats, the different breeds, their habits, and their abilities. A is for American shorthair. B is for Breed. C is for claws. It goes all the way to X is for Xanthus Av Jostedalsbreen, a Norwegian Forest breed. Y is for Yankee cat, a Maine coon. Z is for Zibeline, also called a Burmese cat.

Each page gives little tidbits of information about cats. They can see in the dark, hear tiny sounds, run fast, and always land on their feet. They have strong jaws, retractable claws, rough tongues, and soft fur.

I love the beautiful illustrations! The cats all look so soft and fluffy. The art has such lovely details of their fur and whiskers and the lights in their eyes.Luminous Libro
