The Cat and the Rat and the Hat Reviews

Product Tested By Julie Jessup – Evie 3 Years

Julie Awarded The Cat and the Rat and the Hat Book 5/5

The illustration on the cover made me feel that this would be a very funny book. The title also indicated it would be a rhyming poem. I had to coax Evie into reading this book with me as she was not keen on the picture of the rat. We sat together and she did not move she was very intrigued. Evie really enjoyed me reading this book to her and I had to read it a few times. Even though she is only 3 years old she could read it back to me as the words are repetitive. This was very impressive. My daughter loved the rhyming tale and tongue twister text and she could not stop giggling. She found it so funny. Evie really enjoyed this story and it is a book she has picked out many times to read and look at on her own. She even wanted to take it to Nursery as she thought the other children would also enjoy it. She really did laugh so much and so did I we loved the animals and their capers. The illustrations are amazing and after Evie realised the rat was funny she was quite happy. The characters are very colourful. I read the book initially three times with Evie, but she has read it many more times since. She even had all her teddies lined out and read them the story. We also scanned the QR code and listen to the audio online with the book. I thought I was quite  good story teller, however, the audio version is much better than my version. Evie loved how it rhymed she has a great sense of humour and really found it hilarious. I liked much the same thing as Evie but I was also very impressed with the audio version. I think more 3- 5 years I do think a 2 year old would struggle to understand the concept. However as it is such a good price then it is worth purchasing to put away. Most definitely it is a lovely size book with amazing illustrations and a great story all for RRP £6.99 It is a book that will keep giving value over the years and also an ideal gift. I cannot fault the quality as it was excellent. I would buy this book as a gift. It is a very jolly story that most children would understand and it also helps with their reading. I already have told a few friends about it and I suggested it to nursery. I used to be a Librarian so I have seen and read many books and this is one that I would have loved to have kept in my collection. Due to how comical it is. I believe that education should be fun and this book is both. I think I have said almost everything about this book. I loved the vibrant illustrations. The funny tongue twister rhyme. The fun and laughter that we both had. This book is ideal to start your child reading and explaining about simple words that rhyme, hat, cat, cravat, mat and rat. It is very colourful with large pictures. It is an ideal pre-school book as I have previously noted educational but fun. It is also an excellent price and we will be reading it for years to come.

First impression of the book was that it looked very colourful as soon as I looked at the book. I left it on the table for my kids to see it when they come back from the school and as soon as my daughter looked at the book she was wow this looks impressive and I want to read it straight away. My daughter read it to my son and they both found it very interesting and were eager to find out more about the story. Both my children really enjoyed this book. The rhyming tale and the tongue twister text was my daughter’s favourite part. Both my children really enjoyed the story. The story did make them laugh although they were laughing more while looking at the pictures. The illustrations certainly bought the story to life. They were both playing pretend play with the story characters. My children would read this once a week. My children liked the funny pictures. I loved the colours of the book. I think this book is absolutely suitable for 2-5 year olds. I do think this is good value for money. It is paperback book but the quality of paper is very thick. I would definitely consider buying it as it’s very interactive book. I would definitely recommend this book to my friends as I am sure their kids will enjoy reading this book too. Overall experience was I could see two little  happy faces while reading this book. Book is very simple to ready and very engaging with beautiful. Dhara Desai – Aaliya 8 Years

My first impression was of the front cover being so bold and bright and a really unique art style. My child is a bookworm and he couldn’t wait for me to read this to him. This did captivate his attentions and he did not even fidget while reading this book which is rare for him. He sat still and looked at each and every page while I read to him. He loved it and found it really funny. My son found this book funny especially on a couple pages where the lines repeat themselves 2 or 3 times, I read them really fast and he couldn’t stop laughing. He loved the story and the illustrations and asked for it to be read again straight after. This story made my son laugh and he found it really funny. We loved the illustrations, and the fact that 2 of the pages had you turn the book on the side gave it a fun twist. The illustrations were beautiful, bright but simple as it stuck to just a few colours! I have lost count how many times we have read this book. We have read it every other day since receiving this book. My son loved the pages that had you repeating the 2 sentences a few times over. I loved the colour choices in the pictures. I agree with it being suitable for age 2-5 as that’s when they start learning rhyming and can appreciate the story and pictures. Definitely good value. I think the quality of the pictures and the pages are brilliant they have a good feel to them and the pictures are bright and captivating. I would consider buying one as a present for another child his age, my son loved this book and I enjoyed reading it too and i think a lot of children his age would enjoy it. I would recommend as I think the book is worth reading as its enjoyable for both parent and child. I think the book was a good read and the design was really unique. It is a good addition to the bookcase! This book is different to other rhyming books, as it is very repetitive on just a handful of words, whereas other rhyming books I’ve ever read tend to use different words, I found this captivated my child’s attention even more and possibly helped him take in the understanding of those few words rhyming. The book was stunning and very unique and definitely one I’d recommend to buy for your child. Kirsty Charleston – Dante 4 Years
