The Summer Nick Taught His Cats to Read

Written by: Curtis Manley and Kate Berube

First line: Nick had two cats, Verne and Stevenson.

Why you should read this book: Despite what you probably think, Nick really does teach the cats to read. Irritated that his pets don't enjoy books, Nick sets out to achieve the impossible, easily teaching one cat to read, and then gradually working out the reasons for the second cat's antipathy and crafting a strategy to bring the joy of reading to even the most reluctant cat. The story ends with Nick's decision that he should teach his cats to talk.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You think dogs are smarter.
