Described through rhyming lines, cats, in increasing numbers, perform specific dances in certain locations wearing specific outfits The number of cats involved in each dance increases until the neighbors complain about the noise, causing the cats to return to their homes Klassen has digitally created illustrations that align with the text perfectly He also hid a number in each illustration that represents the number of cats performing the dances This is an imaginative and interactive book that i [...]

When I found this book I did not know it was a counting book It was very cute though, having different cats dressed up and dancing different dances I found it funny at the end of the book the neighbors finally yelling at the cats to stop dancing on Easy Street but nothing could keep those cats from dancing for long I also liked how each number of cats dancing was hidden within the picture to find I found this to be helpful for children learning how to count I do think they should have been conse [...]

    15. This was one of the most fantastic picture books I have read this year Fantastically illustrated with amazing detail by maybe my favorite contemporary illustrator ever Jon Klassen, charmingly versed by Caroline Stutson, featuring pairs of cats dancing in a whole variety of styles and steps and outfits, fantastically detailed, perfectly imaginative, and capturing cats out on the town A fantastic children s book that can be appreciated by grownups, too

    16. This is a rhyming, counting narrative It is nothing special aside from the fact that it is Jon Klassen s first illustrated work the illustrations are dark and lively, textured and rendered digitally I feel as though the cats are not really personified in a way that makes the reader feel attached to them Overall it is ok, I like Klassen s style, and the repeat first and last page, but the overall impressions of this book is, just 3 stars.

    17. This is Caldecott winner, Jon Klassen s debut as a children s book illustrator, and he does not disappoint Cats Night Out is actually a counting book, told in rhyme It is about a group of cats having fun on a Saturday night The words and pictures go together perfectly And it is like Where s Waldo searching for the number on each layout The number 4 was tough.Definitely meant to be enjoyed aloud, it is great for those learning to count, or who just love cats or jazz.

    18. I am such a Klassen fan that I would find a painting of a log by him to be a masterpiece So imagine this catlady s joy to discover he illustrated a book with cats as its stars Quirky illustrations sway and delight as the cats appear in an array of pristine costumes and precise dance moves These cats have aplomb and swagger to be sure And although I love this book, I believe adults will enjoy it than its younger targeted audience.

    19. This is a wonderful counting book, Klassen s first book for kids Different numbers of cats dance different dances in their night out , two and fours, fourteen and , all different dances, clever rhymes illustrated with cityscapes on each double page For example Ten cats line dance, keep the beat in rhinestone boots on Easy Street It s a book with rhythm, clever rhymes, silly cat dancing, and an ode to jazz.

    20. I loved this book by Colorado author and storyteller Caroline Stutson, which would be great for lessons on counting by twos This might also be a great model for kids to write their own counting books Six cats tango in red capesup and down the fire escapes.Eight cats taptip bowler hatsin pink tuxedos, canvas spats.J Klassen s illustrations are a delight Would be fun for storytime Could be paired with any of a variety of dog counting books.

    21. This is a picture book all about Cats dancing cats dancing out in the streets, fire escapes, and rooftops This is a fun cat book that introduces counting as well as fun music, dancing, and rhythms This book could be used in curriculum with younger children to read aloud to, and introduce them to rhyming.

    22. It will be hard for you to resist singing this book out loud to the tune of a rhythmic jazz beat as loads of cats dance across the pages Creatively written and illustrated this children s counting book should be on your list regardless of whether you a real cat person or not Two thumbs up The Librarian Uncle

    23. A counting book that features dancing cats The cats only dance at night, but they live it up sporting different costumes and experimenting with different styles I loved the nighttime setting The illustrator perfectly captures all of the shades of night from the shadows to the way the sky subtly changes throughout the night PreK 2.

    24. This was another book I chose for my dancing Toddler Storytime The book featured dancing cats at night with all kinds of amusing costumes and dance styles positions Plus Jon Klassen s illustrations are just so detailed but the cats all seem to remind me of the Jets and Sharks ala West Side Story as they just look so cool and relaxed dancing Recommended for ages 2 7, 4 stars.

    25. A fun cat spin for a counting book The cats dance in multiples of 2, starting with 2 and dancing their way up to twenty Street noise and music open and close the simple story line, making this book feel like a bit than just a traditional counting book Recommended for preschool counters through first grade, this text is especially good for reinforcing counting by 2.

    26. Cats dance the night away out on the town, doing the tango, rumba, twist, fox trot, and .Dream Big Summer Reading Program 2012 recommended bookAvailable from OCLS in print.

    27. I love this book It rhymes and demonstrates counting by twos with the number of cats dancing The book also asks the question, How many cats will dance tonight , after each dance number so that children can predict what will happen next However, if they notice the pattern, they will know that they are counting by twos

    28. Quiet page layouts a city, above street level, at night Cats dancing Calm AABB rhyme scheme in a two step rhythm I like it But one beef Latin, ballroom, and certain social dance styles are represented, but no hip hop dance styles folks, that stuff has been around for thirty years, and the book is set in the city I would have liked to have seen some kitties krumping.
