How does a dinosaur care for its kitty, you ask?
Cat lovers are everywhere! Now, with the same humor and warmth of their previous bestselling dinosaur books, Jane Yolen and Mark Teague show us how young dinosaurs know how to care for their kitties. From playing with cat toys to cleaning the litter box, children will love the silliness of "bad" pet-owner behavior as they learn what's involved in keeping your cat happy and loved. Also an introduction for children who may be getting a pet soon, cat lovers big and small are sure to embrace this book as a purrr-enial favorite!
"In this board book spinoff of their long-running series, Yolen and Teague's lovable dinosaurs bully and ignore their pets: 'How does a dinosaur play with her cat?/ Does she throw pillows at it and act like a brat?' After other instances of bad behavior are pictured in humorous detail, the latter half of the book is dedicated to proper pet care. Kids who need a reminder about being gentle should get the message without feeling called out. Also available: How Do Dinosaurs Love Their Dogs? Ages 3 5. Two YA novels with the same title are being published in March, so don't get 'em twisted." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
