Little Kid Reaction

This is a slim book with a bright washable cover and a place inside for the reader to write a name. The print is large, double spaced, and so easy to read. This is a charming story of how the kitty gets rids of bullies-dogs. What I like is how she turned an enemy into a friend, and how she lives a full life of adventure despite any physical challenges. This is a book that children will want to read time and time again with great pleasure.

Parent Reaction

This is a terrific story for this age group. It is a deceptively simple story, which makes it a good conversation starter. It has the potential to pack a wallop in the hands of a creative parent or teacher re: friendship, handicapped, bullying, pain of being different, etc.

Type of Book:
This middle reader chapter book is a story about the importance of friendship, coping with challenges, and the importance of thinking positively.
Educational Themes:

This simple story provides opportunities to explore and address the challenges of being handicapped. Coping with bullies and frustrated by limitations are just two issues that handicapped people address everyday. This story is a conversation starter that creative parents and educators can use too deal with issues that their children/students face everyday.
