The wacky and colorful illustrations will keep kids engaged as they learn new words, alliteration, and that it’s okay to like what they like. This book is great for beginner readers, but it also teaches children that's it okay to be exactly who they are.
When my first Siamese cat gave birth to six kittens on my bed, my appreciation for differences and the love of cats started. Cats and students have been a big part of my life for fifty years. Creative Writing was among the high school English courses I taught over my forty years in the classroom. I always wrote with my students. It provided me with knowledge of the assignment and led me down my own path of discovery. After retirement I was able to follow my passion of writing for young readers. I enjoy reading my books in elementary school classrooms and talking to my audience. They always provide me with amazing ideas and I have been able to use some of them to create new stories. I live in Colorado with my husband and one senior cat. I also enjoy being an active grandmother.
One of the things I wanted to do when I wrote my critter books, was to assist young readers in learning new words. My great illustrator helped my readers to understand words like "chifforobres". I remember teaching To Kill a Mockingbird to my students and having to explain that word to them. Leaning words like that and "cravats" early can only help them when they are more advanced readers.
