I preordered this book for my daughter because she absolutely loves Van Fleet's "Dog" book, and I was hoping "Cat" would be just as good... my daughter and I were not disappointed!
The book is listed for children ages 2 and up, but my daughter is 15 months and already enjoys pulling the tabs, petting the fur and flipping open the pages to reveal more cats. She is absolutely intrigued by the squeaking ball! That was the first thing she discovered when she pressed on the cover, and then she turned the pages to find out the source (it's actually a few pages in). She will often sit on the floor for 15 minutes and flip through the pages on her own, carefully examining the cats and all of the features the book has to offer.
My daughter used to bring us her "Dog" book, sit on our lap and demand that we read the book, pull the tabs and pet the animals with her. Now, after only a few days, she does the same with "Cat". At least we can switch back and forth now!
We also have "Tails" and "Fuzzy Yellow Ducklings" by Van Fleet, but for some reason my daughter isn't as interested in them. Perhaps she doesn't find them as fascinating because they are illustrations and don't have as many soft textures as "Dog" and "Cat" do. Either way, I recommend Matthew Van Fleet's "Cat"!
PS: After a while, the kitten that pops out of the boots broke. My daughter must've pulled on the kitten or something!
