Charlie And The Christmas Kitty

Summary:

Little Kid Reaction

Our daughter loves animals and she pulled this from the shelf with a big "aw-w-w!" She liked the story "okay," but she loved the illustrations - particularly the expressions on Charlie's face.

Parent Reaction

This wouldn't be my first pick for a holiday book, but it is a cute story. The illustrations carry the day - especially the little chimpunk who is unmentioned, but moves from page to page.

Type of Book:
This is a seasonal story in the Charlie the Ranch Dog series of picture books.
Educational Themes:

This is a story to enjoy during the Christmas season. Engage young readers by asking them what's happening on the page, and be sure to get them on the lookout for the chipmunk.
