Just what makes up our "perspective" and what difference does it make in how we view others? This is an excellent topic and this simple children's book by Brendan Wenzel makes it possible for children to grasp when read by or with an adult who will engage the child in discussion.

Great use of perspective. The text is repetitive, which would make this great for younger children, although this could also be used with older elementary school children as a tie-in to art lessons on perspective.

2017 Caldecott Honor book. As the cat walks through the world, different creatures see it or sense it in their own unique way; for example, the earthworm senses the cat as vibrations in the ground. Wonderful, unique and creative.

A beautiful book about points of view and how the world is seen from so many perspectives.

A child, a dog, a fox, a fish, a mouse, a bee, a bird, a flea, a snake, a skunk, a worm, and a bat - each sees the cat, but from its own point of view. Cleverly written with delightfully creative illustrations, this book is a new favorite! ~Debby

Besides an engaging story and imaginative pictures, this book provides a great lesson on perspective. They all saw a cat, but what was it they saw?

Fun way to teach kids about perspective and point of view. Younger kids may miss the message, but will enjoy the fun artwork that accompanies each character's viewing of the cat. Good book for parents to read with their children.

This book is great way to show children that everyone sees the world differently. It's a way to teach about art, tolerance, and peace in one book!
