NEW Kids Picture Books: Day 5

From Amazon: "A tale with many tails, perfect for cat lovers everywhere! Miss Hazeltine is opening a very special school for shy and fearful cats.  They come from all over, and Miss Hazeltine gives them lessons in everything, from “Bird Basics” to “How Not to Fear the Broom.” The most timid of all is Crumb. He cowers in a corner. Miss Hazeltine doesn’t mind. But when she gets in trouble and only Crumb knows where she is, will he find his inner courage and lead a daring rescue?

Filled with adorable illustrations and ideal for fans of Disappearing Desmond and The Invisible Boy, Miss Hazeltine’s Home for Shy and Fearful Cats is a story that’s perfect for shy and fearful children as it both helps them face scary situations and accepts them just as they are."

My thoughts: This story was a bit extra-special for us as we just gave away our cats a couple of weeks ago. My girls have been scared of the dark a few times in the night, so it was fun pointing out how the cat Crumb overcame his fear to help his friend.

Recommended Age: 5-8 years (my 3-year-old liked it too)
