Bodega Cat Review

A tribute to the special place bodega’s hold in many New York neighborhoods.

Bodega Cat shows what happens at a bodega through the eyes of it’s owner, the cat! The book explains the daily routine of a bodega and the different people that come in throughout the day. It also goes over the services a bodega provides to the community, in a children-friendly and interesting way.  Written by native New Yorker Louie Chin, it highlights the role of cats in the small stores throughout New York communities.

Rating: 4 Stars.

Cute, concise and with beautiful illustrations, Bodega Cat has me feeling like I’m in New York.



I'm a reader and reviewer. I focus mostly on children's books, middle grade, and young adult fiction. My favorite genre to read is fantasy. I'm also especially interested in how disability is portrayed within said media.
