I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Thoughts on...How Many Cats?

This is the cutest book! A lone dog sits in the house and there are Zero cats but when his housemate comes home....along come the neighbors too!

I love the illustrations and the verse. One the great things is not only are you learning to count but do MATH too!
Twelve fine cats in three lines of four
flaunt and flounce across the floor.
and the illustration shows three groups of four cats dancing! And as the cats are dashing out the door, one waves to the dog!

Too Cute! My copy used to be a library book and some one drew in it :(

Disclaimer: I purchased this book for my own enjoyment based on a blogger recommendation. edit: Dang, wish I could remember where! from Puss Reboots The opinions expressed in this post are mine and may differ from yours. Book information courtesy of several online sites and the book itself.
