Book Synopsis
There Once Was a Cat is designed for young readers, but cat lovers of all ages will treasure it! The reader travels through the alphabet, while enjoying poems about amusing cats, presented in watercolor illustrations.   The book reinforces letter recognition and counting skills.

About the Author
From a very young age, Mary Jane Cogan loved cats and loved to draw. Those two interests never diminished, as she attended Penn State University, earning her bachelor's and master's degrees in education.  She went on to become a classroom teacher, a reading teacher, and an author of educational materials. She also became an award-winning watercolorist.  Mary Jane drew from her experiences as a cat lover, artist, and reading teacher to create her multi-faceted book, There Once Was a Cat.
