In this re-telling of the birth of Christ, a mother cat searches frantically for her little lost kitten. Before the night is over there is the crying of a baby and angels singing His praises. The night's events leave a lasting effect on all the animals, especially the cats.
I thought this was a cute take on the famous story of the birth of Jesus Christ. The pictures in this book are very colorful and just jump off the pages. Yet the pictures were simple. Which I liked. This helps keep little children's interest on the story and not to become so distracted with what is happening in the pictures. Plus, I like that the words were on one page on a white background. I have read many children's books where the words are written on the pages with the pictures or on a darker background and it makes it hard to read the story. The words are not too big that younger children could not read this book by themselves. This is a book that children will want to read again and again. I liked this book so much that I will be checking out more books by this author. The cat family was so adorable. Mom cat loved her family. Just like Mary and Joseph loved their new son, Jesus. In the back of the book the author did a glossary of Christmas symbols. Each one had a picture and a nice description to explain what the pictures were and what they represented.
FYI- The publisher did provide me a complimentary copy of this book through BookCrash.
