I am a cat.
Are you a cat?

Cat is curious. There's a new addition to the family, but who exactly is this small being? This new arrival doesn’t meow like a cat, or smell like a cat, or even have a tail like a cat. As Cat investigates, he might just come to appreciate this loud, silly family member. After all, they both enjoy a good catnap.  
In Cat's First Baby, the feline companion to Dog's First Baby, Natalie Nelson captures the wonder and humor of a new family member through a cat's eyes. Sure to delight kids and cat parents alike, this board book promises to be a repeat read-aloud.
