Mr. Cat felt the warmth of the sun's rays in the living room and he slowly opened his eyes. He allowed the rays to dance up and down his back. He yawned and stretched and realized it was morning. He nibbled some food from his bowl and lapped some water before setting out on his morning stroll. He sat in front of the open door, wondering what to do next. He strolled for a while and once he had strolled three blocks, Mr. Cat felt tired and decided to rest in a shady spot under a bench. A bee interrupted him, saying it was great to be a bee and make sweet honey and pollinate the flowers. He met Mrs. Duck, Mrs. Turtle, and many other animals while strolling but he was happy and pleased to be a cat.

But I Am a Cat by Jamee-Marie Edwards is a wonderful story about self-acceptance and self-love, and also introduces young readers to animals and insects and their characteristics which make them unique, different, and special. Lowell Hildebrandt's illustrations bring the story and the characters to life and make the concept clear to readers. It is a good storybook for parents and tutors to teach children self-esteem, self-love, self-belief, self-acceptance, and be happy with who they are and what they have. But I Am a Cat by Jamee-Marie Edwards is definitely a good story for all children lacking self-esteem and self-love, and Mr. Cat and the rest of the animals will teach them to be happy and proud of who they are.
