    I love Spat the Cat books. He is just like a few students that I teach. Throughout this story Splat is nervous, and is full of questions throughout school. I found it funny that Splats best friend is a little mouse, and in the edn saves the day. It shows how a bad day could turn into a fantastic day.

    I adored this sweet tale of young Splat the Cat, and so did the first graders to whom I read it aloud. Splat is nervous about his first day of cat school, and thinks of a million different reasons why perhaps he shouldn't go, but his mother reassures him, counters all of his excuses, and escorts him to his first day, along with his pet mouse, whom he has packed in his lunchbox. Mrs. Wimpydimple proves not to be mean as Splat thought she might be, and actually comes to the rescue when the mouse escapes and threatens to wreak havoc in the classroom. This would be a great story to read to young students during the first week of school, to reassure them that everyone has anxieties and worries about what school will be like, and that hopefully, all will work out for the best as they get settled into their new surroundings.

    I'm sorry; I really don't get this. Why do the other cats wear clothes? Why is he named Splat? How is this story any more special than all the other first day of school books? I will say this - I really want his red messenger bag!

    Going to school for the first time is pretty scary so Splat the Cat is trying his best to find a way out of it. Turns out that school is pretty darn fun!

    Drawn in by its whimsical title and droll cover illustrations, I had hopes that Splat the Cat would prove to be one of those quirky and endearing picture books that can satisfy readers both young and old. I suppose I was expecting something in the same vein as Daniel Pinkwater's Bad Bear books, or Jackie French's Diary of a Wombat.Unfortunately, this tale of a cat and his (much feared) first day of school, simply didn't deliver. There are any number of children's books meant to reassure young readers about starting school, and Splat the Cat simply doesn't stand out from the crowd. Even the sub-plot with Splat's pet mouse, Seymour, didn't feel that convincing. Scotton's illustrations are cute at first, but it soon becomes apparent that the google-eyed Splat always seems to be wearing the same basic expression. It's possible that my atrocious head-cold, and attendant grouchiness while reading this one, have colored my view, but I honestly didn't see much here to rave about.

    Splat the Cat is getting ready for school, but he is a bit nervous and tries to avoid going. Then he and his mouse, Seymour, cause a bit of chaos, but also save the day. Splat's school experience makes him excited to return. This is a humorous and fun book filled with great artwork. Students could use this book to practice reading strategies and skills, such as cause and effect, making connections, etc. Students could also study Scotton's art style.

    This is the cutest book I have ever seen. I saw it a book fair at my college and we sat down right there and read it.

    A fantastically illustrated book about a cat's (kitten's?) first day at school. There is a little rhyming and alliteration sprinkled in which adds to the fun. The textures of the illustrations are so fine you can almost feel the fur. A terrific first day of school read aloud!

    Splat is starting school and is nervous. As such he keeps finding excuses as to why he can't go. The pictures are cute and the story is simple. It's easy to read the book too fast since it's such a simple read - so pace yourself when reading Splat the Cat.

    Funny & fun children's book

    Summary: Splat is a cat who is afraid of going to his first day of school. When he gets there he learns that cats are supposed to chase mice, but his best friend is a mouse. This is all very confusing and scary for Splat. In the end, he loves going to school. Genre: Early ReaderPersonal Reflection: I am really drawn to this type of illustration. The illustration, to me, is the best part of this book. The characters and their emotions come alive with this rarely seen style of illustration. Concept: This book would be a good one to read to calm the nerves of a kid who's afraid of going to school for the first time, or a new school.

    Splat the cat wakes on his first day of school afraid. When Splat and his friend mouse get to school he learns what cats do, they chase mice. The mouse gets loose but after finding him the teacher changes what cats do, they don't chase mice. In the end Splat loves school. The illustrations in this are great, they really help the reader see how the cat's are feeling. I think this would be a great book to use for an art lesson and also just to use for a fun read-aloud

    ELL could understand the book without reading it. Learn about everyday activities to get ready for school and ask students to list the ways a new school can be scary. Ask them about the humor in the book.You could use this to teach students how to include alliteration, italics (when thinking), wordplay (purr-fect), interesting names, increasing font size to make writing more dramatic, names that give foreshadow events (splat), elipses, and phrases arranged differently on a page to make it more interesting to read.

    Splat the Cat is simply an entertaining, cute story about a cat who is apprenhensive about going to school. He brings his pet mouse to keep him company. How will the other cats react when they see a mouse at school?

    Rob Scotton has produced a wonderful picture book with very effective interplay between the written text and the illustrations. The art work is exceptional, with beautiful yet economical uses of texture and colour. New details continue to reveal themselves, even after many reads. The story is witty and compassionate.

    I can't get enough of Splat. He is so lovable and adorable. This illustrations are so detailed and other storytime hit!

    I like that this shows the overcoming of first day of school anxiety. Splat the cat also had a friend the mouse and splat had to tell the class not to chase him.

    This book is about a cat named Splat and his first day of school. He was worried and said everything he could possibly say to stay home that day. Finally, he packed his pet mouse(kind of ironic) and headed to school. He ended up having a great first day and made lots of friends! He could not wait for his second day of school.I like this book because I feel it relates to most children on their first day of school. I think this is a really cute book and it has good illustrations. If I were to plan on reading this book to my class, like most of my reviews say, I would come up with some sort of an art project. I would also have my students create a list of feelings they might have felt on their first day of school.

    Irresistible fuzzy, Splat doesn't want to go to school so he takes his mouse friend with him. well, at lunch all the other cats try to eat his mouse friend but splat stops them when the milk cupboard is locked, his mouse friend unlocks the cupboard and then all the cats learn to love mice for what they can do. did the author actually set out to teach kids that there are no natural enemies?
  • (4/5)
    What I like: This book is a great book for children who are preparing for their first day of school because it's Splat's first day of school. However, Splat does not know what to expect and is a little scared about going. He soon finds that he has many friends, and he teaches his friends that mice are good.What I did not like: nothing. This book is a good book.Recommendation: I would buy this book for my library (medium public library).

    Cute children's picture book about a cat's first day at cat school. Splat, who brings his pet mouse along in his lunch box, learns from his teacher that cats are supposed to chase mice. What happens at lunch time? I'll let you read and find out. Illustrations are cute.
  • (3/5)
    Cute illustrations are what dominate in this okay title. Splat the Cat is a fuzzy black cat who is nervous about the first day of school; he takes his pet mouse with him for moral support. When the other cats discover the mouse, they chase him! Oh no! All ends up well, never fear. There's nothing too special about this "fear of school" title except Splat himself, who is really really super duper cute.

    I think that the illustrations were the greatest strength of this book and that really doesn’t say a lot. It had a good concept for the story line about a first day of school, but it was not that interesting to read. The illustrations were better then the plot, but it is not something I would want to look at repeatedly nor do I think a student would be interested in it either beyond a first read.
