I got this because my current version had been pretty banged up by some other kids and my son and I are a bit of a perfectionist with our books (or maybe I am and have successfully passed the ideal down to him even though he's only 3). Our previous book was only a flip book and this one has slide out tabs. I have a love/hate relationship with these tabs. In a way, it's more fun for him because he gets to do more while reading with me than flipping the pages, but when we lay in bed to read they are placed right where my hands hold the books and they apply to both sides - and with so few words I feel like we are just rushing from one tab to pull out to another. I still love this book, and my son (3 yr old) took about three read through a before he was able to identify each animal to me and start quoting the story. It's nice. But I think I would have preferred to just flip the pages.
Nice book. I wasn't sure what "ready-to-read" meant (aren't all books ready to read?), now I know: it's a very thin flimsy book that teachers can store easily since now those poor teachers are required to have TONS of books in their classrooms with different reading levels to accommodate for the different abilities each kid has and those books must be organized on the shelves by level so that the kids know where to find them for their independent reading (while the teacher does their "rotations," "small groups," etc). I believe this book is marked with the corresponding level, but not sure about that. Elementary education has changed a lot and those poor teachers are juggling to do millions of things at the same time while the kids seem to be achieving the same or even worse. Don't put the blame on the teachers, it's not their fault. The book is good anyways, I just wish it wasn't so flimsy.
My in-laws originally gave my son the slide-and-peek version of this book, in which you pull tabs to reveal the various cats. Two weeks ago, my son pulled too hard at some of the tabs and yanked them out. I glued the pages together but used too much glue and now the tabs are permanently glued in the pages! I tried to find a similar book on Amazon to replace it but none were available (at the time) so ordered this version instead.
I was really disappointed in the quality of the book. First of all, the pages are twisted out of shape. But the most glaring error was that on two pages the images are printed twice, one off-center from the other. Also, halfway through the book the print style drastically changes. At first you have a picture of a cat on the left page and the boy talking to the various people on the right page. Halfway through the image of the cat takes up both pages, while the image of the boy is shrunk and crammed in the upper right corner above the cat...
