One cat sleeps. Two cats play. Three cats stack!
Stack the Cats is a charming book about counting and organizing cats in various formations. But when the cats decide to go their own way—as cats often will—it’s time to count down until there’s only one sweet cat left. Counting forward and backward, understanding when there are more or fewer of something, and grouping and recognizing the number of items in a group are key early-math skills for toddlers, making Stack the Cats as developmentally sound as it is ridiculously adorable.


"Counting from one to 10 is the usual math activity in simple picture books, but this one takes on other mathematical operations, too... Thanks to its gentle inconsistencies, this is a book that can expand children's thought processes."
"Crisp, bold illustrations to introduce simple math concepts that go beyond the usual counting fare for the very young... A simple yet clever lesson that there’s more than one way to stack some cats. Ideal for one-on-one and small group sharing."
School Library Journal
"As fun as it is clever, Ghahremani’s cat-infested concept book is a treat."
