From two cats waltzing to twenty cats in a conga line, dancing felines take to the streets, the fire escapes, and the rooftops in this charming concept picture book that is part counting and part introduction to music, dance, and rhythm. The short rhyming text makes it a perfect read-aloud treat, and with vivid illustrations from a breakout DreamWorks animator, readers and listeners alike will be thrilled to see what happens one night on Easy Street when a pair of cats start to groove to the beat.

We have had this book for a couple of years, and have read it a few times. Cutie Pie's uncle and aunt bought it for her for Christmas a few years ago and even got it  signed by Caroline Stutson. (Which is pretty cool!)

Cutie Pie's Rating:

My Thoughts:
This cute book is a great read for younger children.

The book starts off with hearing music in the street.

Then there are two cats dancing on the roof.

From there we go up to four and so on counting cats by twos, all the way up to twenty.

And all of these cats are doing different dances that are from different nationalities.

Samba, boogie, tango, tap and polka to name a few.

I enjoy reading this book with my girls and they love the fact that it is about cats and dancing.

And the pictures are cute. I love the illustrations!
And another cool tidbit, you can find the hidden numbers on the page in the illustrations.

I highly recommend this book for children that are learning to count.
