List Rules Kids books that are about cats or kittens.

List of the best children's books about cats. So many kids, long before they are exposed to the cute kitten overtaking of the world wide web, simply adore cats. "Cat," in fact, is one of the often one of the first words a child learns to spell and pronounce. This list of the best books about cats for kids, spans from the famous Dr. Seuss books to Ed Young's classic Cat and Rat.

In fact, if your child is a fan of the film versions of The Cat in the Hat or Puss in Boots, get them the books for even more fun and entertainment. There are so many great children's books worth buying that center around feline protagonists. With author Helen Cooper, cats appear to be a recurring theme. The same is true for the Bad Kitty series by Nick Bruel and Anne Fine's Killer Cat stories for kids.
