New children’s book, “The Fat Cat,” by Ralph and Dr. Belen Mills is a delightful rhyming story with fun activities emphasizing “at” words such as “mat”, “sat”, or “pat.” Dr. Mills has extensive background in early childhood education with three additional published books and several accolades including Who’s Who in American Education.
“The Fat Cat” also includes activities and educational objectives designed to enhance critical thinking and inculcate timeless and high moral values for successful living such as personal discipline and responsibility, healthy habits and self-esteem.
“This book will provide a great opportunity for children, parents, mentors and teachers to enjoy their time together,” the author said. “Nothing can ever replace the intimate person to person connection we share in those fleeting moments and precious time we have with our young children.”
Children and adults alike will enjoy “The Fat Cat,” and the fun opportunities for education it has to offer.
