In this book, there are adorable cats in a stack. There are adorable cats falling out of a stack. Why anyone buys any other counting book is a mystery to me.
The cats in this book are so cute they almost made me forget I was being taught basic math skills... almost.
One cat sleeps. Two cats play. Three cats stack! Cats of all shapes and sizes scamper, stretch and yawn across the pages of this adorable counting book. And every now and then, they find themselves in the purrfect fluffy stack!

**STARRED REVIEW** "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." — Kirkus
"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
**STARRED REVIEW** "As fun as it is clever, Ghahremani’s cat-infested concept book is a treat."
"Ten cats attempt to stack themselves into impossibly adorable towers in a book that’s ideal for children (or adults). . . The cats all but beg to be named by readers, who will flip back through this sublimely silly outing to choose their favorites."
— Publishers Weekly
"Cat lovers will pore over the fluffy, fuzzy, striped, and splotchy felines rendered in clear digital hues that pop against mint-green and orange backgrounds...though listeners should probably be warned that stacking may not go over well with actual cats." — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
"Brightly colored, this utterly charming board book teaching children how to count to ten (and back again!) is very highly recommended for family, daycare center, preschool, elementary school, and community library collections." — Midwest Book Review
