Children's Review: Splat the Cat: The Name of the Game

By Rob Scotton Splat the Cat: The Name of the Game (I Can Read Book 1) (Paperback) June 19, 2012 - Rob Scotton

A and K really liked to have this book read to them via the option of "read to me."


A did not like how Splat's little sister said "so sad, too bad. You lost the game!" She was very upset that she would say something mean to her brother. Which lead to me explaining that sometimes things that are said is not nice and maybe she shouldn't have said that. What could she said instead.  

Splat and his friends are playing hide and seek and Splat wonders why he never wins. He decided he doesn't want to play with his friend anymore and will play by himself. Though he then realizes that playing by himself isn't all the fun. So he finds his friends and this time he finds a good place to hide. While reading this book Splat reminds me of K and how he acts when he doesn't win at something. I always have to remind him, it is a game and you are meant to have fun. As both kids enjoyed Splat the Cat I think we will be reading more.
