Favorite Children's Books: The Cat Who Wore a Pot on Her Head

This is a delightful book that is charming to read-a-loud. The story by Jan Slepian is about a cat whose name was Bendemolena. Isn't that a great name to say? And when you say it twice in a row ("Bendemolena, Bendemolena") the charm quadruples! And that's exactly what you get to do in this book. 

Well Bendemolena gets a pot stuck on her head and it covers her ears so she can't hear her Mom very well (good excuse don't you think?). Kids love it! And they love the way Bendemolena mixes up the things that her Mom asks her to do. For example, when her Mom asks her to "put the fish on to bake" she thinks she says "put soap in the cake." It's very silly and very hilarious to kids. 

One of the charming things about this book is it's ending. After Bendemolena had mixed everything up and caused a lot of chaos, her Mother finds out about it. But she isn't angry. She simply fixes the problem and encourages Bedemolena's creativity at the same time, which I love. This is a great story and one I highly recommend to your family! Enjoy.
