 Dive deeper into the world of Neko Atsume: Kitty Collector with two new adorable books from VIZ Media! NEKO ATSUME KITTY COLLECTOR: WHERE AM I MEOW? and NEKO ATSUME KITTY COLLECTOR HAIKU: SEASONS OF THE KITTY

If you follow my blog then you know my girls are both animal lovers.  My oldest daughter, Savannah, can't wait until she gets older and can move out just so that she can get a cat.  She is all about cats and dogs, but cats are her favorite, and her room, clothing, etc. shows this.  Unfortunately, her sister, Bella, is allergic to cats, so we can't get one.  Instead, she has to settle for cat and kitten plush toys, and gets her cat fix playing the NEKO ATSUME: Kitty Collector app on the ipad, and now reading two new books which released from the folks at VIZ Media, for fans of the Neko Atsume game.

If you are a cat lover like my daughter, then you probably gravitate to Japanese anime as they are all about cats, and have tons of kitty toys, clothing and mobile apps available for cat lovers.  Whenever we go shopping, Savannah will grab her coin purse so she is ready if she finds a NEKO ATSUME blind bag or plush toy.  She has a nice collection going, which she displays on her bookcase -- and which is off limits.  Only she can touch them, as she doesn't want them to get dirty or ruined.  

So, when she saw NEKOATSUME KITTY COLLECTOR: WHERE AM I MEOW? and NEKO ATSUME KITTY COLLECTOR HAIKU:SEASONS OF THE KITTY arrive at our door, she couldn't wait to get her hands on them. She sat with Bella and they did the "Where Am I Meow?" activity book which offers fun seek-and-find puzzles, stickers to complete scenes, and information about the different game characters.  Savannah was telling Bella that this is a must have for NEKO ATSUME fans.  The spent over an hour reading and learning about each of the cat characters.  Savannah was happy to see her two favorites Bandit and Cocoa in the book.  When the girls were done reading through this book and doing the different activities, they grabbed their doodling books and started to draw their favorite Neko Atsume cats and added some of the leftover stickers from the book to their drawings.  

The other book, NEKO ATSUME KITTY COLLECTOR HAIKU:SEASONS OF THE KITTY, reads like a story book and is broken down into chapters based on seasons and months.  The pages are filled with haiku's and entertaining activities.  Savannah whizzed right through the book, finishing all 125 pages in under an hour.  :-)  She was all smiles that she was able to read this book without an issues and then asked me if we could study haiku's for school.  This book sparked her interest in poetry, and had her  itching to write a Neko Atsume haiku of her own, and have Bella add the illustrations for her.  So, for school next week we will be studying haiku's and the girls will make their own, which we will make into a little seasons haiku book.  I can tell you know that the book will be filled with a lot of cat and dog illustrations. :-)

With Easter fast approaching these two new Neko Atsume books would make a great basket filler for that special cat lover in your life.  My girls have already asked me to keep an eye out for more Neko Atsume book as they want to grow their collection. As they wait for more to release, they continue to carry around these books are read through the pages, and then spend hours drawing their favorite kitty characters.  These books are definitely gifts that will be enjoyed for quite some time.
