Book Sharing Monday:There are cats in this book

My husband and myself are cat lovers. We don't live with a cat at the moment, but both kids are very fond of cats, too. So I just had to borrow this book from the library when I came across it a few months ago.We LOVED it and borrowed it  for the second time last week!
 It is an interactive book with lots of flaps and  lots of funny cats. There isn't a story as such, but you get to meet three cats who want to play with you. Great fun for little ones ensuring lots of laughter at bedtime!

I found a youtube video of the book, read by the author and illustrator Vivianne Schwarz:

Schwarz has another book There are no cats in this book, which we also love.
My friend Zoe at Playing By the Book has recently posted free activity sheets from the author. I love what her daughters created with the cats!

What have you been reading and enjoying with your children lately? I would love it if you come and share with us. Feel free to grab my button (on the right hand side) and share the love.
