Beschreibung

Written by Scribd Editors

This intriguing children's book is perfect for showing your kids the many perspectives that are out there. As the illustrations shift and change, the book asks whether you still see a cat?

Following the various lives of a cat, Brendan Wenzel celebrates observation, curiosity, and imagination. Any shape can look like anything to anyone, and Wenzel does a wonderful job of getting readers to ask what they see when they see a cat. Share your perspectives on each image with the people you're reading the book with, and enjoy some time discussing whether or not a cat is a cat when it's seen differently by someone else.

Perfect for reading in a classroom and starting discussions about how people see things, or for reading to your little one and start teaching them to be curious early. Whether you're a teacher or a parent, this book provides perfect teachable moments for young kids and could even be great for a new reader.

  • (5/5)
    A beautiful book revealing how everyone and every creature has a different perspective on the world. Fun to read with young ones just to identify the different animals, but as they grow they will gain a better understanding of the diversity of life.
  • (5/5)
    Very humorous look at the world from the viewpoints of different characters as they react to a cat

    "In this glorious celebration of observation, curiosity, and imagination, Brendan Wenzel shows us the many lives of one cat, and how perspective shapes what we see."Highly recommended as a way to introduce and explore the concept of perspective -- that even though we're all looking at the same person, place or thing, we can all see that "same" in very different ways. Learning to see from someone else's viewpoint is a crucial lesson in a world with raging narcissism and (seemingly) dwindling empathy.4.5 stars

    This is a perfect picture book for very young readers. It is also one that would be a great read aloud for preschoolers. Lots of different animals see the cat. The cat is illustrated through the eyes of each of them. Some of the illustrations are quite whimsical! I loved it, even in spite of the fact one of the creatures that saw the cat was a snake. My heart usually races whenever I see pictures or photos of those, but I managed to stay relatively calm since it didn't look very real. I read the library copy. Now I want my own!

    This one was just too cute. It was amazing to me how each perspective was shown so differently. I loved it.

    "The cat walked through the world, with its whiskers, ears and paws," the narrator of this lovely picture-book tells us at the opening of the story, going on to detail the many different creatures who in turn see the cat. Each observer - a child, a dog, a fox, a goldfish, a mouse, a bee, a bird, a flea, a snake, a skunk, a worm, and a bat - sees the cat differently, something highlighted in the artwork. They all see the cat, but how does the cat see itself...?A wonderful book, one which emphasizes how differing experiences result in different perspectives, and how differing physical realities influence the different ways we see, They All Saw a Cat is as beautiful as it is thoughtful. Brendan Wenzel, whose artwork in Some Bugs and Some Pets was so immensely engaging, creates a slightly less busy book here, visually speaking, but one that still has artistic appeal. I really liked the different ways he depicted the cat, in order to reflect the differing perspectives of the various creatures. The two-page spread from the mouse's perspective, in which the cat is a ferocious black monster on a red background, was particularly well done. Recommended to anyone looking for children's stories that teach about perception and how it differs from individual to individual, as well as to fans of Brendan Wenzel's artwork.

    The art is mesmerizing, the words lyrical, and the overall story inspired. Seemingly simple, this story shows how different animals all perceive a cat, but it incorporates both scientific lessons (for example, how bats perceive by echolocation, worms by vibrations, some animals see color and others in black & white) and the message of stepping in someone else's shoes and understanding life from different perspectives. So many layers, yet so simple & beautiful.

    I enjoyed most of the book and its message, but the ending was meh.

    I love seeing so many ways to illustrate a cat.

    A fun read about perspective and diversity. So glad I read it.

    I love this book. It’s almost perfect. The pictures are truly wonderful and perfectly illustrate the book’s focus about perception and self-identity too. They’re detailed, fascinating, sometimes humorous, sometimes sweet, and sometimes scary.The text is interesting and has effective repetition to keep young children engaged while at the same time sufficiently interesting so that older readers will not be bored.I like the end a lot although that last illustration is might be my least favorite of the bunch.A wonderful idea, very well done!
