No one wants the small striped cat who is lost. "Scat, cat!" says the dog, the bird, the barber, the baker, the bus driver, the duck, the frog, the goose, the owl, the bat, and even the skunk.
So the cat walks and walks until he finds a little house where there is a little boy that does not say, "Scat, cat!" In an ending twist, the cat discovers he is home. Young readers will learn the names of animals and occupations as well as useful vocabulary in this sweet and simple text.
This My First I Can Read Book is perfect for shared reading with toddlers and very young children. Basic language, word repetition, and whimsical illustrations make this book just right for the emergent reader.
