Barefoot Books: Cleo the Cat - Book Review


I have had my indoor Siamese cat, Jasmine for quite sometime. She is the princess and enjoys hearing me play the piano and also cuddling up on my lap to hear a good book read aloud. Alas, many times you'll find Jazz taking a cat nap as most cats sleep a lot during the day. Do you find that to be so? I'd love to hear about your pet. What's the matter... cat got your tongue? ( no pun intended ) Anyways, I wanted to share this delightful series of board books by Barefoot Books about Cleo the Cat.

* Come Here, Cleo!
Follow Cleo when she sets out to explore the garden one morning, and finds that it is full of surprises. Cleo's adventures introduce her to some fascinating new friends - and can she catch the butterfly?
