Poppy Cat is a little cat with a BIG imagination who has been introduced to the world through the popular 3-D pop-up books written and illustrated by Lara Jones. Poppy Cat's world is easily identifiable to the preschool-aged child, as Poppy Cat and her friends laugh, play, explore and pretend together. It reinforces language acquisition skills and encourages verbal creativity by the use of rhyming narration.
