CATalphabet!

Soooo, drum roll please…. At long last, I would like to introduce you to CATalphabet!!

(Note to book retailers and teachers and libraries..it can be ordered through INGRAM )

My first children’s book! I am very happy with it and know you will enjoy it too! There was a giant learning curve to getting this accomplished. I self published it and am still learning the ins and outs. Now the marketing starts:)

CATalphabet! is a storybook book full of cats and fun verse and letters of the alphabet! The alphabet is what gives the book it’s structure, but it is much MORE than a romp through the letters. It is a book of conversation starters…

Jonathan Mills and I had a TON of fun writing the verse. We made it super entertaining to read and full of interesting words and concepts to spark conversations and learning opportunities. Some verses were just written for the joy of reading it aloud, like the letter R!

There are twenty-six beautiful full colour illustrations each one featuring cats. Every letter of the alphabet also gets it’s turn:) Some of my favourite paintings are included. 

Here are some Amazon.com and Amazon.ca reviews!

“Fun for kids big and small. HIGHLY recommend!
Lots
of fun with alphabetical alliteration and Shelagh’s fantastic
cat-themed folk art!! I’m a fan of Shelagh’s “folk art” cat paintings
(the one for D is one of my favs) and this is great way to get a
collection of her work along with a “bonus” teaching tool (or a teaching
tool with “bonus” artwork).”

“Shelagh has deftly captured cats at
their whimsical best through her vibrant illustrations. As a teacher, I
know this book will be a welcome addition to any Primary level
reading program. Kids will want to read it again and again to experience
the delightful alliteration that makes reading this book to and by
children a joy. Handy for car rides and great for memory work too, as
you can query what cat did which activity. This book is sure to become a
treasured work of art, beloved by readers of all ages. Kudos to the
author and artist!”

“What a beautifully illustrated witty and
whimsical book to have fun reading out loud to kids and the young at
heart. I plan to gift a few of these to some cat lovers I know! For
those that love art and quality illustrations, you will really
appreciate the work that went in to this book.”

“Ms. Duffett’s lively illustrations are well matched with the book’s whimsical prose; a great buy for cat-lovers of all ages!”
