Kind Words

“What a delightful, warm-hearted story! With all our hundreds of videos and picture books about our best furry friends—this one is told from the cat’s point of view. And for all the good, purrfect things—tuna to eat, carpets to zoom around on—it’s the people “Kitters” loves the most. The pictures too are unforgettable, like those you remember from your own early years. This is one to enjoy, and pass on down to your family’s youngsters. “

“I love this book! I’m so glad I bought one for myself and four more for friends who have grandchildren. Not only is A Purrfect Home for Kitters a touching story about surviving loss and learning to adapt to change, it is often hilarious. The text is in the cat’s voice, which makes it fun to read and gives readers the ability to be in the animal’s viewpoint.The illustrations are gorgeous, vivid, colorful and capture the emotions purrfectly! If that weren’t enough, at the end of the book are pages of interesting feline facts. I highly recommend this wonderful book.”

For Educators and Guardians

Finding a new home

 
Children are often subjected to difficult, hard to understand, situations in life. Children and adults alike face times when courage and acceptance are needed to navigate unwanted change. This book is a valuable teaching aid for teachers and guardians to help a child address issues when changes are occurring. More often than not, this is an emotional time for a child.

This book provides an effective and useful teaching aid, by using Kritters, a beloved cat, as the subject of change. Grandmother must find Kritters a new home. It explores the feelings of Grandmother’s family, especially from the perspective of Kritters. It is a quest that ends happily when a friend of the family adopts Kritters.

This book was written by award winning teacher Jacqueline Faber who has taught children for decades. Children will find it interesting to learn from Kritters’ point of view. They will learn how cats communicate through body and ‘tail-language’. There is even a ‘tail-language’ guide in the back page material of the book that children love.

At the 4-8 year old level, this book shows that sometimes pets want only certain folks in their lives. The back-matter shows how cats have their own special “tail- language,” and what is most loving in their behavior.

Sometimes love is letting someone, or something go. Unselfishness is a universal quality children can understand. Children that learn this can often help their friends that are going through similar situations.
