I have such fond memories of my mother and grandmother reading to my brother and me. We would snuggle up on either side and listen to the same stories again and again. The illustrations were always so important, giving us ideas for future make-believe and our own masterpieces!
I was reminded of these moments by a recent baby shower request – the invitation encouraged family & friends to bring a book in lieu of a card. Since the shower was for my very first niece, I had to get a book about cats, right?? Of course. As I began looking for the perfect gift, it occurred to me that a blog post on cat-themed children books might be fun. I was right. I was transported back to a time when my favorite show was Reading Rainbow and I never doubted my artistic ability!
I hope you enjoy my finds. I’ve selected 15 children’s books that not only feature cats, but are gorgeously illustrated in collage, watercolor, pastels, among other beautiful mediums. There are several more on my Pinterest page! Tell me your favorite in the comments.
