Book Review of The Littlest Christmas Kitten

The Littlest Christmas Kitten written by Leona Novy Jackson and illustrated by Kelly Dupre is a delightful book for small children. It will engage them immediately, when they read of a mother cat’s desperate search for her smallest baby.
The cats all live in a stable with the other animals and have been happy until the tiniest kitten cannot be found.  Then they are sad.
As the story progresses, two humans arrive at the stable and this frightens the animals. Humans are not always kind to them. These humans, however, are different. The man and woman are very quiet and try not to disturb the animals. They are obviously tired. The lady rests and her husband takes care of her. Shortly after their arrival a baby boy is born. The man prepares to place him in a manger but finds a kitten sleeping there. In an instant mommy cat removes her littlest kitten. She happily lets the humans place their baby there instead.  She knows that he is special to them, just as her baby is to her.
The animals are very happy that their smallest family member is back again, and is safe.
The humans are content that they have somewhere warm to stay and to rest from the cold. Their precious little baby will make the world very happy when they hear about his arrival. Lots of people will want to come to see him.
This book will be an excellent introduction to the story of Jesus. I am confident that the story will be a favorite of little children everywhere, as it is an easy-read format that even young children will learn quickly.
I received a complimentary copy of this book through BookCrash in exchange for an honest review. (Federal Trade Commission’s regulations).
