Book Jacket Summary
A playful and rhythmic page-turner, Carrot the Cat learns that to like who you are is right where it's at. Carrot is a delightful story about a common house cat who finds that the grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence. 

My Quick Thoughts
Carrot was a cat
content day to day.
She would nap until noon,
then head out to play.

Carrot is a sweet orange tabby that goes around town everyday. She chases mice but hardly ever catches them, instead she brings them soup when they are sick. One day she sees a beautiful white cat that lives on a yacht and imagines what a glorious life it must be living in such luxury.  The pictures are beautiful and I am becoming a fan of Kristin Blackwood. Bold colors, especially Carrot with her orange fur and the backgrounds around town. Little kids will like this rhyming book about a cat. This is a cute book and a great one to check out of your local library. It will be good for a couple readings and it does show how Carrot learns to appreciate what they have rather than living someone else's life.
