A Great Gift May 2, 2008
I purchased "Telling Time with Big Mama Cat" as part of a birthday gift for a 5 year-old. The gift also included "Telling Time: How to Tell Time on Digital and Analog Clocks!" and the Timex Kids' Time Teacher Rotating Disc Dinosaur Watch #T7B121. Big Mama Cat was a HUGE hit!
A Wonderful Relaxing Book Mar 17, 2008
I read this warm and wonderful book to my 2 year old grandson every day - we read it at least twice or three times. He just loves it. He has a cat at home and can relate to Big Mama Cat. He also loves clocks and goes around our house collecting them during the day. This is a great book for helping to teach a child how to tell time or just to familiarize them with the clock and how it works. At 2 years old, my grandson is a little young for learning how to tell time but he really does enjoy this book and I believe he is learning something about "time" every time we read it. I highly recommend this book.
Great book for young clock and cat lovers Dec 22, 2007
I bought this book for my 19 month old nephew who loves clocks and also has a cat, so this is perfect for him. I am a little concerned about the book's durability as the first one I ordered arrived damaged, with holes along the spine. I have not given it to him yet but I am sure it will be a hit. I love the concept of moving the clock around to match the times of day discussed in the book. The artwork is great and the story is something he will be able to relate to for the next 5 years or so. Well done!
Sweet Kitty! Sep 30, 2001
Whether you're teaching your kids to tell time or not, this book is so charming! The illustrations are beautiful, and perfectly capture the lazy/hungry/cuddly nature of cats. It works as a picture book for younger children, with not too many words on a page, and I imagine it would be a good teaching tool as well.
Cat lovers delight Aug 6, 2000
This pleasantly simple picturebook features a nicely illustrated cat who describes her day. A foldout moveable clock allows children to match the hands of the clock with the time of day being described by Mother Cat. The pictures are soothing and the work is both comforting and fun.
