A big mam cat narrates this story, explaining that "some people think cats don't know much-but I, Big Mama Cat, know how to tell time. How else could I keep my busy day on schedule?" Readers quickly discover the irony in this assertion, as illustrations reveal that her busy day consists of napping, eating, or waiting to do one or the other.
Clocks showing the times referred to in the text are visible
on every page and can be supplemented by a clock with moveable plastic
hands (part of the front cover). Publisher's Weekly
ended their review by saying, "Big Mama Cat will likely succeed in
teaching young cat lovers to clock their days with confidence."
