Mittens is a small kitten in a big, new house. Everything seems loud and unfamiliar and scary. The little kitten wants a special place all his own. Can a new friend help him find one?
The satisfying story of an adorable kitten's search for security and his discovery of a new friend is perfect for children who, like Mittens, are ready to take their first steps on a new journey: reading.
Mittens is a My First I Can Read book, which means it’s perfect for shared reading with a child. "The beautiful physical immediacy of the new pet story will draw emergent readers," commented Booklist.
