I am a Cat
by Galia Bernstein
Abrams Books for Young Readers, 2018
A gray tabby cat, Simon, introduces himself to a roomful of large cats—think lions, tigers, leopards, panthers, etc.—and claims he is just like them. The large cats, of course, find that hilarious and laugh at Simon. Each large cat introduces himself and what makes him distinctive. Simon challenges them how they can all be the same, when they each are different, and the large cats list off what they have in common and Simon quickly responds, “I have all of those things. Only smaller.” Find out how Simon gets them to agree they are all cats.
A hilarious read that introduces young readers to the world of large and small cats.
