For Your Little Library: Dewey's Story, Retold for Kids



I will be adding this darling book to the list of goodies I'll be packing in my grandchildren's Christmas box. I loved Dewey's story - now it's time for them to understand why☺

From PeoplePets.com
If you read Vicky Myron's 2008 best-selling book, Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World, about the special orange kitten abandoned in a book depository at an Iowa library, then you know that the story should have come with a box of tissues. But now Myron has teamed up with illustrator Steve James to adapt that heart-warming tale for younger audiences — minus the tears!

The colorfully illustrated book ($16.99) is called Dewey: There's a Cat in the Library and includes some of the fluffy feline's most amusing adventures — like climbing into the book cart, snooping in open drawers and running around with rubber bands. Just when you think things might turn sad with a melancholy little girl reading a book, Dewey swoops in to save the day just like a trusty library cat should.

It's the purr-fect bedtime story to add to your little one's library.

Thanks for your visit to my side of the world. I don't know how you keep up with 4 blogs. I love them all! Jingles is a big fraidy cat. She doesn't like the big world outside the front door but relishes her time on the balconies -- especially the bigger one where she can actually see beyond the boundaries (the other balcony has siding on it so is private). Dewey sounds like a wonderful, fun book for kids. So hard to get decent books, even for children, in this country. Best wishes for your day :) Tammy

This is the CUTEST book! My cat Spooner is a therapy cat and will be "working" in a library, beginning this week. I squealed when I saw this book! It's so sweet. Two paws up, way up for this one!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and the two suggestions. I will do that from now on. Rocky is a smart cat and will learn fast. He got out so fast unknown to me! I totally believe in keeping our cat inside. We have lots of windows for him to look out and when possible, we open them...during the warmer weather.

I loved the book Dewey.

Have a fun day.

Dewey was such a fine cat, and had an effect on the lives of so many. I wish we had a cat at our local public library!
