It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

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 :(
