Those of us who live with pets often think we know just what they are saying with their various vocalizations. This book gives children four – eight a chance to interpret the "meows" of a playful kitten. What does "Meow?" mean when the kitty shows up with a ball? What does "Meow!" mean; is kitty getting impatient? "Meow!!" from Mom and Dad Cat seems to have an obvious meaning. So do more "meows" while gardening, looking at a book, taking a bath, and going to sleep.

Described on the jacket as a "wordless" picture book, this book actually says quite a bit about how animals — including humans — can express their feelings. Try reading it aloud and see how many ways you can say "meow."
