5- A-Day Book Challenge - Week 6

I have been sick for the last week and  was not able to read to/with putti  much. And I am so glad she had picked two of Eric Carle's books which she and I have known by heart now, so made it much easier to read.
Have You Seen My Cat?
Have you seen my cat by Eric Carle is a little boy's story whose cat is missing, and he goes around asking people to find his lost pet. He sees many members of the cat family, including lions, tigers and panthers. "Have you seen my cat?" and "This is not my cat!" are repeated and are the only text to read in the book, which makes it very easy for putti to read it. She loves recognizing the various wild cats all through the book!!
Very Hungry Caterpillar 
The very hungry caterpillar by Eric Carle has been Putti's favorite for a long time now. It teaches days of the week, the days of the week, counting to five and also the life cycle of a butterfly in a wonderful way.

 One Hungry Monster: A Counting Book in Rhyme
One Hungry Monster by Susan Heyboer O'Keefea wonderful is a counting book with lots of rhyming text. Purple eggplants and pickled pears are putti's new favorite food to ask for snack!! The monsters paint their lips with peanut butter, put spaghetti on their heads and more and putti has attempted to paint her lips when she eats peanut butter. Hope she does not try to mimick the monsters' other acts.

Ten in the Meadow
Ten in the meadow  by John Butler The critters are almost too adorable. The book has nice rhymes with the hide-and-seek story. And there're some visual clues about who the Bear will be finding next which putti loved guessing.
Duck in the Truck
Duck in the truck by Jez Alborough is the story of a Duck in his truck which gets struck in the muck who is helped by a sheep in a jeep and goat in boat!! Loved all the rhyming words. Putti  pointed out that Duck did not Thank his friends for helping  him and she did not like that!!
