Pounce Book Review and Giveaway



 As many of my readers know my son loves Cats. One of his first few words after mama and dada was kitty cat. I wanted to review this book for him. He liked it when I read it to him. Its a simple and sweet book. We did our own Pouncing after we read it. The overall story is to use your imagination to dream of bigger and better things. Only thing I would improve is the book could have been a bit longer.
 

Pounce is the true story of an adventurous kitten that climbs, explores, and gets into trouble.  Through his strong imagination, Pounce explores deep, dark caves, climbs mountains, skates across icy glaciers, and camps out in harsh climates.

Based on actual photos of Pounce and the recollections of those who loved him, the story and its visuals create a magical setting for the little cat to explore his world and express his dreams.

The extra comments are not going to be counted right? The rules say you can tweet/Facebook ONCE per day, and there are multiples being posted for both each day by one person...
