Cats Are Cats

Cats are Cats

Miss Bell goes to pet store buys a cute kitten that has stripes, a tail and a smile so like a tiger, that she names him—what else?—“Tiger.”  But Tiger soon grows out of kitten-hood; as a matter of fact, he is soon as big as a tiger, and even roars, moves and plays like a tiger!  Although it’s obvious to others that this is no ordinary cat, bespectacled Miss Bell still sees Tiger as her beloved baby pet. “Cats are Cats,” she says.” Miss Bell knows that cats love to watch fish, so she returns to the pet store to buy Tiger some of the little critters.

Winter Bees & Other Poems of the Cold




"What do the trees know?

To bend when all the wild winds blow.

Roots are deep and time is slow.

All we grasp we must let go.

What do the trees know?

Buds can weather ice and snow.

Dark gives way to sunlight’s glow.

Strength and stillness help us grow."

Baby Bear Counts One

Another of my favorite seasonal picture books is this companion book to Baby Bear Sees Blue.  In an autumn landscape, a curious bear cub asks Mama Bear questions about the sounds of animals around them, and then counts the animals as they make their preparations for the winter.
