I know. I was disappointed, too.
But it turns out that Cat Secrets is actually a really fun book to read aloud, especially for littler kids. The book starts with three (adorable) cats, who are explaining to you that the book they are holding is for CATS ONLY. Because it's full of cat secrets. You keep reading, of course, and they catch on that you are probably not a cat. So they ask you to prove your cat-ness by doing some catty things--meowing, purring, that kind of thing. I won't spoil the ending, but it's pretty funny. And The Boy and I had a good time meowing and whatnot.
