Black Cat & White Cat by Claire Garralon

This is a very simple story in a board book that emphasizes contrasts.  The illustrations are lovely.

Sourcebooks Jabberwocky sent me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you).  It has been published, so you can grab a copy now.

The story tells you that black cats live in white houses and white cats live in black houses.  Everybody is fine with that until the cats decide to visit.  Then they find the black cat is hidden in black houses and the white cat is hidden in white ones!

We have two outdoor cats.  One is all black, one is a Tuxedo cat.  At night, unless Harley is showing you a white foot, you can't see either one of them on the porch.  So this story makes sense.

That's why the two cats must go play in the park or some other area with color so they both show up.

It's cute story done in a sturdy board book that little ones can enjoy and turn the pages, too.  Share it with your young one and teach them about black and white and contrasts.
