ANIMAL SAYINGS (Language Arts—Creative Thinking)
The author might also have called this book Scaredy Cats, since the act of being scared is often associated with cats. People can easily tell when a cat is frightened—it hisses, arches its back, and puffs up its fur. Help children compile a list of other sayings that are associated with animals, for example: an elephant never forgets or slow as a snail. Children might create a story using one of these animal sayings.
