How to Be a Cat: 05/31/15
How to Be a Cat by Nikki McClure is a concept book that follows a kitten through the course of a day as she practices essential skills: pounce, clean, scratch, and so forth. The book is nearly wordless, save for the title and the single word on each page marking the kitten's skill.
At first glance, the kitten appears to be rendered in calligraphic ink. Turns out, she's actually cut from paper.
Though the book is clearly aimed at either parents reading to infants or to young children first learning to read, it's still a cute and entertaining book for anyone who has cats.
