My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Read Now copy via NetGalley

What drew me to this book was the big orange cat on the cover, and as a lover of cats (especially orange ones) I just had to check it out.

Carrot is a cute little rhyming book about the daily adventures of Carrot the cat. One day she sees a white long haired kitty named Buffy looking rather royal like on a yacht. After spending sometime admiring Buffy she starts to wonder what her life is like and what her own life would be like if she could be Buffy. At first it all seems to be wonderful and exciting, thinking of all the things she could do and see. But after more thought Carrot starts to think of all the things she would miss if she lived in that world rather then her own.

This story is a great for teaching children that as much as some other persons life may seem more interesting and better then theirs, things are not always as they seem. And to think about all that they have, that would be missed out on if you they could change places with someone else.

I do have some issues with the book, some of the words are rather big for a children's book, especially for those trying to read it on their own. The story it's self while I found it to be cute seemed just a tad too lengthy. But that is just MY opinion.
