ballroom dancing for cats: the secret passion

Summary:
Virginia and Theodore love to dance. No matter that they are cats; they have purr-fected their footwork and all manner of dance routines.
Educational Themes:
The reader can get glimpses of various ballroom dances.
Reading Level:
0.0
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
8 to 10
Recommended Age To Read Together:
4 to 9
Age of child:
Read with 5½-year-old child.
Purchase Recommendation:
Borrow, if you are a cat lover (or know one). This is a 'collector's book for someone who likes humorous books about cats.
Little Kid Reaction
Our child thought the pictures were humorous and even recognized some of the dance moves (like the dip). She asked about Theodore and Virginia, but then would flip to something else while we were reading.
Big Kid Reaction
The book is cute, but after reading it several times, we are still left wondering how this is a children's book. The illustrations, while cute, are truly 'still shots' of Theodore and Virginia.
Pros:

The graphics are simple illustrations with cats in (what children would think) are humorous positions. They can learn a little bit about dance, too.

Cons:

There is no real story, to speak of, just a sequence of dances.
