Shadow Cat

Poems and Wood Engravings by Sylvia Hahn

Theme: Animals / Pets, Ages 5 to 8

Shadow Cat

This delightful sixteen-page book of poems about a cat is sure to win the affection of young children for its expressive illustrations and sensory lines. Even if the youngest children do not grasp the meaning of all the words, they will enjoy their sounds, which is part of building literacy. At the same time, in reading and rereading the lines with the children, the teacher can explain in simple terms the meanings and the children will enjoy using them in their own writing.


Read and reread the poems. Then let the children write their own poems about their own pets.
