10 Best Cat Picture Books: 12/07/10

10 Best Cat Picture Books for 2010

As I've mentioned throughout the year, my daughter loves stories about cats. We have read a lot of cat picture books together in 2010. This list comprises our ten favorite reads for the year. These weren't necessarily published this year but they should be easy enough to find. With the exception of Cat Dreams, all the books came from our local public library.

9.Henry the Sailor Cat by Mary Calhoun (1994)

8. Catwings Return by Urusla K. Le Guin (1989)

7. Puss in Boots by Charles Perrault and illustrated by Fred Marcellio (1991)

6. Opera Cat by Tess Weaver (1993)

5. Angus and the Cat by Marjorie Flack (1934)

4. Katie Loves the Kittens by John Himmelman (2008)

Interesting post. so many books about cat, I wonder if there are that many books about turtles.

I've made 2 silly stories about turtles but I don't think it'll be made into books ;)

In the future I will make a post about turtle books. I could easily make a list of ten. A really great one that I just read is called The Nediad and I will get it reviewed soon.
