This little story teaches an important lesson: that we can achieve goals, even if others think we're not "up to the job." There are many jokes about watch cats (hissing, growling, biting), but this cat merely uses his most natural talents to catch a thief. He can be a cat, not a dog.
Taking that premise and notion Don Winn created a fun, lyrical book written in prose that is easy to read, easy to follow and fun for the kids to read or listen to as it is read to them.
What I enjoy most about Don Winn's books is that they are created in a manner that young readers, such as my girls, can read by themselves without large words to stumble upon.
At the end of each book is a list of questions that parents can discuss with their children. As a home school parent I believe these are great assets to help encourage your child in cognitive thinking.
