Cat Comes Too, by Hazel Hutchins (illustrated by Gosia Mosz)

Cat Comes Too
Author: Hazel Hutchins 
Illustrator: Gosia Mosz
Publisher: Annick Press
Publication Date: February 7, 2013
The thing I love most about Hazel Hutchins charmingly simple books for young children is that they reinforce word usage by using the same words in a variety of contexts. In Cat Comes Too, the words she features are "too" (and to, two) and "little." It's not that there are necessarily a lot of different meanings of the word, but toddlers will still enjoy recognizing its usage on each page ("too crowded, little climb," "too small, little push," "too little to get out"). I just love that a book aimed at toddlers thinks to do that!

Now if only she'd write a book for teenagers explaining "your" and "you're"!
