UPDATED REVIEW! In my first review I had mentioned that this book was NOT formatted correctly for the Kindle. I am now happy to inform readers that the book has been reformatted and is now VERY readable. Whoo Hoo! If you have not read any of this Kitten series you and your kids are missing out. They are FANTASTIC!
In this book, Kitten meets Squirrel. Both having fluffy tails a conversation soon ensues as to how they both use them. What game can they both enjoy and play together? As well as being amusing, this well-written book is also educational. Learn what squirrels use their tails for. There is a great moral presented at the end also. IMPORTANT to note that in the physical copy of the book there are coloring pages at the end. Naturally these are NOT in the Kindle version so if you have a colorer in your family you may want to consider purchasing a physical copy. It will be worth it as the illustrations are superb. I was not required to write a review but chose to do so. Thanks, Liz
I’d already enjoyed reading about Kitten and Snake, so was looking forward to reading what Kitten would get up to with Squirrel. The wonderful illustrations in this series are amazingly life-like, as well as being incredibly cute! Kitten makes a new friend, Squirrel, in this story. They compare tails and activities, and enjoy a race together. I like that these books also explain the moral of the story at the end. This story is about being better at different things to your friends, but that it’s still always better to do things together.
Another lovely Kitten tale about friendship, and how to be a good friend to others.
Kitten & Squirrel: A story that helps you teach your child friendship skills, manners, and etiquette in a fun, non-preachy way written by Aviva Gittle and illustrations by Tekla Huszár is a book of differences and kindness. I loved the images drawn in this book and I'm know readers will fall in love with these furry characters as well. A great book to read to your young ones to teach valuable lessons on what it's like to show kindness to others.
I just love the illustrations in this book! Kitten is so beautiful and squirrel looks so real. I also love the moral of the story--we can be different and even be better at some things while others may be better at other things, but that doesn't mean we can't be friends. A great book that children will love while also bringing them a wonderful message about friendship. 5 stars
This is a sweet story about a little kitten and her new friend, Squirrel. There's an element of education - about saying nice things to your friends and being patient and kind - and just an element of cuteness as only Kitten can be. The illustrations are wonderful. This is a very nice book to share with a child. Nice work Aviva!
Continuing in her adorable series, Aviva Gittle brings Kitten to life once again, but this time with the company of a squirrel. The playful dialog and action compares and counters the abilities of these two fuzzy new friends, and the story ends up with a nice lesson for young readers. Gittle's text seems to flow better with each volume, and Tekla Huszár's illustrations have reached a point of near-photo-realistic finesse in many places.
I love this collaboration and series! Great work, ladies!
Children will love the bright, crisp artwork in this story about two friends. They notice their similarities and their differences, and they enjoy both. There is a great lesson about friendship with no prejudices. My favorite picture it the one with them hugging each other.
The "Kitten" books are all superb-- modeling good social behaviors for children without drawing attention to the fact that "there's a lesson here." Who knows what a beautiful world it might be if all children learned early that they are wonderful just as they are, that they don't have to be like anyone else. Kitten & Squirrel teaches that.
This story is suitable for children as it is written to enable them to learn new information. It presents the similarities and differences between the two animals and emphasizes the importance of acceptance each other (by playing with each other) despite the difference.
