I bought this book on the recommendations given. I still find it amazing that with every page "where is my cat" THAT is not my cat" can hold a child`s interest. My 22 month grand-son reaches for this book all the time. I bought the hard back type, and the slides with the images of the cat are a bit stiff for him to pull out/push back on his own, but with just a tiny bit of help he can help guide the cat into the page, and on to the next cat!
We discuss the people from around the world, and illustrated on the pages, and also all the various cats.
I would definitely recommend this book.
My disappointment is that when he finally does find his cat, it is, to my mind, obscured by all the other cats on the page...indeed, one can just aboout recognise that the main cat is in fact a cat, but this does not detract from his love of the book.
