Kitties are Not Good to Eat - Cassandra Gelvin

This is just adorable. That's really all I have to say.


This is a board book -- I'd honestly forgotten those existed -- so dial those expectation in to the correct channel. This is a collection of cute cat pictures (you know, the things the Internet was full of before we entered the era of heightened political discourse we're now in) that are sure to delight little kids. Accompanying these pictures are handy rhyming tips like, "Kitties were not made to fly / And they do not want to try."


Maybe not advice you need, but for a 2 year-old this could be life changing stuff -- life extending, even.


The photos are fun, the text is, too. I can't imagine that the target audience of a board book (or their electronic equivalent) wouldn't love to hear this read to them a few times a day. Potentially more importantly, this won't become really annoying to the reader all that quickly (it will eventually, but what doesn't?)


A cute book that will entertain and/or not annoy -- that's pretty much all you can hope for with a board book. Give this a shot.
