This book is a fantasy picture book done in ink and wash. It is appropriate for the primary grades. In this story, 6 little kittens are born to a barn cat. The 6th little kitten is very shy, unlike her brothers and sisters. She lags behind one day on a walk, and finds all sorts of friends as she

tries to find her way home. When she arrives home with the help of a small black puppy, she and her friends and family have a picnic. It turns out that the shy little kitten was not so shy after all, and she had the best day imaginable making all of her new friends.
This book is a good example of fantasy because it follows a kitten and her thoughts, as well as the words and human interactions of various animals.
This book has a good example of a well developed plot with a clear beginning, middle, and end. It also has a clear antagonist (shyness) and a clear protagonist (the shy kitten.)
This book could be used in a lesson about different kinds of personalities.
This could be used in a lesson about accepting all types of people and learning to make new friends.

This is a cute little story about a shy kittens adventure throughout the farm and her new friendships with the animals she meets when she gets separated from her mothers and brothers and sisters.

Granted, I'm not the intended audience, but seriously, this seems random and boring to me. Cute pix though.
