I received Meow! by Victoria Ying for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
Meow! by Victoria Ying is a adorable picture book with minimal words that is all about a playful kitten who gets frustrated when her family is too busy to play.
Meow? Meow? MEOW!
Featuring expressive art and sparse text, this fun read-aloud will allow parents and kids to creatively tell the story by expressing just one word in lots of different ways. This sweet and clever picture book is sure to charm readers through to the final purr.
Perfect for fans of the New York Times bestselling They All Saw a Cat, Spot, the Cat, and all cat lovers!

As a family full of cat lovers and a cat of our own all 3 of my girls enjoy me reading Meow! to them. I try and say meow a little differently with varied inflections each time the word comes up on the page to match the situation that we are looking at. My girls go through feelings of sadness when the kitten does not have anyone to play with but then they are of course happy when the meows turn into happy meows. My girls usually run off to play with our cat when I am done reading the final page. Meow! is a cute book that has been added to our bookshelf for family reading time.
