Goodnight, Rainbow Cats

Chronicle. Nov. 2019. 26p. Board $10.99. ISBN 9781452182131.
PreS-K–Twelve colorful cats are ready to get some much needed sleep at the end of the day. One by one, each one is asked “Where are you going?” and each cat replies, “Up to a room in the big white house!” As readers turn the page, a die-cut square is present in the color of the cat who just entered the house. The big empty white house quickly becomes filled with colorful square windows. At the very end of the story, readers will see the inside of the house that shows all 12 colorful felines asleep. Young readers will delight in the “magic” of the house filling up with colorful windows and will be introduced to colors they may not know, like lime green and crimson. Repetitive text and simplistic illustration make this perfect for young readers.
VERDICT This oversize board book is a super bedtime selection that will also appeal to young children and families looking to enforce color recognition skills.
