Cat Time is a colorful, imaginative book for ages 0-7 years, helping children learn to tell time on a traditional clock face while appreciating pretending skills. The book uses rhyming, which leads to phonemic awareness, can be used for vocabulary enrichment and the development of the child’s ability to pretend. Parents can spring into other educational opportunities after reading Cat Time by encouraging children to learn about cats, their eating habits, growth patterns, birthing process and natural habitat. Pretending encourages creative thinking by opening all possibilities to every situation. When children imitate Liddy, their own skills will be expanded.
The unique part of Cat Time is the page dedicated to the parents. It helps them use the book in the most educational way possible. Schuepbach offers simple suggestions to parents, questions to help the child interact with the parent, and a list of skills that will help parents understand the value of reading from the day the child is born.
