Atticus Caticus

by Sarah, Maizes is an adorable ode to a beloved family pet that’s just perfect for reading aloud. Atticus jumps, stretches, eats breakfast, suns himself, plays with string, waits for birds at the window, then gets into bed. His actions are narrated by the little boy he lives with, who keeps up an energetic beat that riffs playfully on Atticus’s name: “Atticus Caticus, ears like a bat-tat-ticus!” The rhythm of the story will encourage listening to children to clap along in time, or to make up rhymes about their own furry friends!
