Square Cat ABC Giveaway

I am sorry for the lengthy break between this post and my last one. I enjoyed my Christmas break a little too much and it has been hard to get back into the swing of things. 

After a great time skiing and some much needed time off, I am back at it now and I am happy to make my comeback post with a book giveaway! I hope everyone knows Elizabeth Schoonmaker’s beloved book Square Cat and remembers the fun I had using it in my classroom. If you missed it, you can check out the post here

Elizabeth brings Square Cat back again in her newest creation Square Cat ABC. I love the way Elizabeth has highlighted letters within everyday words young children may use and placed them within phrases rather than isolated them in single words. I think Square Cat’s dislike of spinach will be funny and relatable to little ones. The book is a great springboard for growing things, friendship, the ways we are alike or different from our friends, fruits, veggies, and nutrition. For more on Square Cat check out the New York Times Amazing review of Square Cat ABC here and the Square Cat website here.


Elizabeth has graciously offered to give away an autographed copy of her new book to two lucky bloggers. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below with your name, email address, and a fun suggestion for using the book in your classroom. The giveaway ends Tuesday night January 20th at midnight.

So… I have said it before, but I have to say it again… I am a CRAZY cat lady! So here are a few square cat funnies in honor of my two favorite cats- Sophie and Maggie!


a Few Square Cat Funnies

With Martin Luther King holiday coming up-this book might be a great springboard to talk about how we are the same and different. It sounds like it would really appeal to young children.

Karyn said...

Oh my goodness this book looks too cute! It looks PURRfect for practicing fluency and expression! Haha! I couldn't help myself (I have cats that love to squish themselves into small boxes and even bowls!

Looks like you had a well deserved, wonderful break! :o)


sped runner said...

This would be such the perfect book for my self-contained classroom. I teach grades kindergarten through third and we are working on letters and friendship how much more perfect could I get?

Miss Kindergarten said...

OH my gosh, love!!!! I too am a crazy cat lady ;)

Jamee said...

This book looks very sweet! I love that the cat is square! What fun conversation that would generate in our classroom! I would use this book for my low babies that are struggling with letters. They need a fun and creative way to help learn those tricky letters!


Terry Yordan said...

What a darling book. I would use it in many ways. We could pattern cats out of different shapes using Square Cat as the model. We do a unit on friendship and that would pair nicely. We also do a unit on animals and we could do our own variations of what Square Cat would do with letters. The this book has endless possibilities.

Heidi Butkus said...

Love the pictures of your kitties as "Square Cats!" Okay, I'm not a good one to win this book because I no longer have my own classroom, but I just wanted to tell you that I LOVED the pictures of your kitties!!! LOL!
By the way, I love the book though! I just think it should go to one of those other currently hard working classroom teachers!

This book looks wonderful! I would use it with my kindergarten intervention students to reinforce the alphabet and introduce vocabulary. With my older intervention students, I would use it for choral reading. This would give them a fun and colorful opportunity for them. Thank you!

Heather Sebastian said...

How fun to read to the class and then have all the kiddos create square cats and decorate them! :)

Tomi Hammons said...

What cute book to use when learning shapes! The Square Cat ABC's would also be great when learning the letters too! I love your square cats pictures. I too am a cat lady!

Lee Ann Rasey said...

Looks like such a cute book! Our Right to Read week is in a couple of weeks and the theme is Cool Cats and this books would be great for it. My students would love it!
