The Littlest Christmas Kitten

The Littlest Christmas Kitten by Leona Novy Jackson is a children's book I'd like to share with you today.

About the book:
The Littlest Christmas Kitten colorfully portrays the events of that first Christmas when Jesus was born. It’s a story of how the lost is found in the midst of a miracle on a special night. On this most Holy Night there is an air of excitement as the animals in the barn move about restlessly. A mother cat is searching frantically for her little lost kitten, just as two strangers enter the stable.The story helps children gain a close-up, richer understanding of that Holy Night as they make a connection between Christmas and the cat family. Original full-color wood cut prints enhance the tale of the cats’ legacy as the story relates why cats’ purr on Christmas eve.

My thoughts:
This is a nice children's Christmas story.  Young children will like the cat characters and will easily be able to follow along with the Momma Cat looking for her missing kitten. The illustrations are nicely done. There are not many words on each page, making it appropriate for young children. Early readers could probably even read it themselves.  Also, at the end of the book is a listing of various Christmas symbols and their meanings.  I liked the layout and story of this  book. 

This book was sent to me for my honest review through the BookCrash Reviewers program.

Have a day of blessings!
