5.0 out of 5 stars young learners esl 29 May 2006
Format:Paperback
This is a wonderful book for all young esl learners, full of fun, with ready and really useful stereotypes, easy to learn and to recite. The rhythm, the colours, the repetitive pattern makes it so enjoyable that reading English becomes really funny and learning how to pronounce, to spell or where to put a phrase/wod stress is easy! AN excellent follow-up activity after 'description' or 'countries and nationalities'...

I highly recommend it to any teacher with esl sixth forms!

5.0 out of 5 stars A delicious celebration of cats and boxes 30 Nov 1999
Format:Paperback
Cats of all nationalities appear in their appropriate costume: the cat from Japan with a big blue fan, the cat from Berlin in lederhosen who plays a violin - but none of them is quite as charming as my cat, who likes to hide in boxes of all kinds - cardboard, hat, or best of all, toy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book! 23 May 2011
Format:Board book
My daughter LOVES this book. We ordered the regular paper version first, and every time we got ready to read it she started to giggle. When I searched to see if it was in board book format, I was so excited to see that it was available I had to order it. I gave it to her for her first birthday, and she got super excited when she saw what it was. I don't think she's let it out of her sight since it arrived. I highly recommend this book to parents of infants and toddlers - the repetitive rhymes appeal to kids and the bright colors and cute illustrations hold their attention. We are from the United States, and it's not available over here - so glad it's still in print in the UK!

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant book 19 July 2008
Format:Paperback
This was my favourite book as a child and my one and only real memory of nursery. I loved the rhymes; especially the 'cat from Norway got stuck in the doorway'. Can't wait until my daughter is old enough to read it. A truly brilliant book.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of our favourites 22 Aug 2007
Format:Paperback
The simple rhymes and wonderful imagery go a long way towards making tbis one of our favourite books. Like all children he loves the repitition and finds each different cat amusing to - not least of all when we try and make it through the list as the end without taking a breath. A great early book that doesn't pall as your child gets older.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely book with lots of repetition 14 Oct 2002
Format:Paperback
I loved this book as a child, thirty years ago, and I still love it now. It has plenty of repetition that even young children soon become familiar with it. My son enjoys joining in with the rhymes. 'The cat from Norway, got stuck in the doorway - but my cat likes to hide in boxes' wonderful...
