Book Review: My Dog, My Cat by Ashlee Fletcher

So can you tell why I picked up this book from Netgalley*? Yup, any picture book with a cat is a must in this house.

This book was cute and simple. It went into ways that cats and dogs are different. The words were simple and perfect for beginning readers. The fact that many of my son's sight words were in this book meant that my son could "help" me read the book to him. He was so excited by that.

He was delighted to find out that both the dog and the cat love pepperoni pizza. Since that is his favorite kind of pizza he was so happy to love the same food as them. He giggled when it came time to learning where the dog and the cat go to the bathroom. Just like most other children his age (and of course some adults) potty humor is a big one for him

The illustrations are cute and helped my son to guess at some of the words he didn't know. When I asked him his favorite part he told me he loved the whole thing. This will definitely get a couple of rereads in our family. I'm glad to find a book that he can partially read along with.   For older and more advanced readers this book may be too simple. But this is perfect for very young children or those like my son who have learning disabilities.

5 out of 5 stars
