Alycat and the Cattywampus Wednesday is a story that children and adults alike can learn from to go with the flow!
Disclosure: I received this book to review through iRead Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
Alycat wakes up to seafood gumbo for breakfast, and even though her house is the first stop for the school bus, the bus is already full when she boards. Alycat’s whole day is turning topsy-turvy. What is happening? Young readers will tag along on Alycat’s adventures during her very “cattywampus” Wednesday and learn that a little help from some friends and a good attitude can make your day!
The themes of the books in the Alycat Series all reflect a reliance on friendships, imagination, and creativity towards problem solving. The character traits of Alycat and her friends inspire and encourage young readers to find their own special gifts. After enduring a cattywampus world pursuant to an unexpected pandemic, this book will resonate with readers to persevere through the wackiest and toughest of times.
Alycat had a ‘cattywampus’ Wednesday, but never got angry or upset – she kept a happy face the entire time and just went with the flow. Talk about a story that children and adults alike could learn from!
We have read Alycat books before and my 9 year old loves them (and has since she was 4)! I think it’s a combination of Alycat being a cat, stories she can read, and the fun illustrations! All I know is that she was thrilled to get a new Alycat book!
I find the Alycat books easy to read, fun to look at, and has cute little lessons for kids (and in this case, adults) to learn! They are super cute stories that kids enjoy! I mean, who wouldn’t enjoy a cute little kitten doing every day things that our kids do!?
Cattywampus Wednesday is a good reminder that change isn’t bad; that we can learn to go with the flow and everything will be okay!
