A simple housecat named Simon encounters some bigger cats: Lion, Puma, Panther, Tiger, and Cheetah. Each of the big cats has something to say about Simon not being cat enough. According to them, he just doesn't measure up. He doesn't have Lion's mane or Cheetah's spots. He doesn't sleep in trees like Panther or climb mountains like Puma. He's small and fuzzy, not big and strong. But ultimately, Simon shows the big cats that he's just like them . . . only smaller. A celebration of both individuality and community, I Am a Cat is a strong debut that shows we're all more alike than we think . . . if we look closely enough.

What makes a cat a cat? This playful read-aloud stars a lovable, fluffy, gray tabby cat interacting with different "big cats" like lion, puma, and cheetah, who don't believe that such a small kitten could possibly be a cat like them. I love the illustrations, especially the expressive faces and bodies of the big cats, and the pages that show just their tails, paws with claws, and eyes glowing in the dark. A fun (and educational!) read-aloud for storytimes about cats.
