    “Your child will make you read this one over and over and over again. The best part is that your kids will learn life lessons without even knowing it!” —Hoda Kotb, co-anchor of the Today show   Catherine is an only child, but she’s never alone. She has Baby Doll, Lamb, Mr. Elephant, Lady Ladybug, and Bonnie Bunny to keep her giggling all afternoon with their stories and antics. While the tagalongs tease each other about their shortcomings, Catherine the Great, with her insightful, big brown eyes, sees the goodness in them all.   In the end, everyone has learned to share and be good to one another, and Catherine is ready to take on more adventures.   Filled with charming dialogue and plenty of silly situations, this makes for a wonderful read-aloud book.  “With each turn of the page you seem to share a kindred spirit with Catherine and her ‘tagalong crowd,’ and you almost secretly wish that she would invite you, too, to join in the tea party.” —Frank Davis, Naturally N’Awlins host, WWL-TV
