Here's a tip. Don't read this one at the public service desk if you don't want to be weeping and desperately trying to hide it.
Sweet sweet story about a puppy who gets adopted by a Mama cat. Both have to get used to each other and it's not always easy. Topics covered in this books are adoption, single parent families, and diversity. I love the line, "Mom is learning how to be a mom and I'm learning how to be Mom's kid." I like that the book highlights that it isn't only the kids who has to learn in this situation.
For a short little picture book, this packs a lot of emotional punch. Great for a family with an adopted child who doesn't look like them. Sweet, gentle and simple enough for a young child to understand and enjoy it.
A cute little story about adoption and families looking different but still being a family.
It almost made me cry at work.
Majestic feline mother teaches her adopted puppy-child the true meaning of family. This story of unconditional love paired with lovely, warm illustrations will make you shed happy tears.
It's pretty clear this is an adoption situation, and Galindo captures the emotions and experiences that come with such a big change. A cat adopting a dog perhaps illustrates the feeling of foreignness the child might experience. I don't know if it matters that it is a single-parent family, but that is certainly a reality today. My least-favorite line is, "But Mom promises me we'll be okay. She says that if we just try a little harder, tomorrow will be better." The best illustration is of the sma [...]
As others have mentioned, this is a very sweet book that talks about adoption, acceptance, and diversity in a very simple and easy to understand way. When Momma Cat adopts (or brings home) her new baby (dog), there is a lot of uneasiness from both ends. This could also be a good book for those in foster care. Momma Cat does everything a mom is to do, and knows just what to say to make her new baby understand and feel accepted.
"Mom is learning how to be my mom, and I am learning how to be Mom's kid. We are learning how to be family." Theses the story of a dog that gets adopted by a cat and how they are adjusting to the situation. They don't look like each other, and sometimes the mom has to yell, but they are learning how to become family. I think this is a nice way of throwing adoption into a story, as this can be relatable to many children.
I use this in a family-themed storytime. It is great for showing young kids that families come in all shapes and sizes and that you don't have to look like your parent to be loved and be part of a wonderful family. This is a story of adoption and tells the story of a child and new mom getting to know each other and learning how to be a family. It's really lovely. I would definitely recommend including it in your booklists!
This book is a good book. It’s about a puppy who’s new mom is a cat. The puppy is nervous about not fitting in with everyone else, so the puppy paints strips on itself. The mom washes it off to let the puppy know that it’s ok to be different. I love the way this story is told and it would be a good book to use with children who are adopted.
Fantasy - 2016Really sweet book about a cat who adopts a puppy and their journey to learning how to be a good mom and child. This book promotes family and diversity and would be a great read aloud in primary grades or for a family themed unit.
In my Family Storytime I want to showcase a range of different types of families. This one is great. It's about a Cat that adopts a little puppy. Becoming a family is not easy but with patience and a lot of love they learn how to be a good mom and a how to be "mom's kid."
Loved this and it was cute
3.5 lovely warm picture book about acceptance.
So simple, and yet so powerful. Read it with a kleenex in hand.
Having a sib who's adopted, and having numerous step parents, this book really resonated with me, and I'm sure with others as well. Wonderful!
Sweet and sensitive book - and much needed for families who have adopted or fostered.
Lovely adoption story. Could also be used for a family where a stepmother plays a significant role in the child's life.
Galindo has created s a comforting picture book about a Mama cat who adopts a puppy. This is a lovely adoption story which tells a bigger, heartfelt, story about acceptance and family.
I love that this book is about not looking like your family but that it doesn't change the fact that you're a family.
A wonderful story about a cat who adopts a puppy. Both of them love each other, but must also learn how to understand one another. The cat is a single mom! <3
Such a sweet story about a new family!
Very accessible, preschool-friendly book about adoption and diversity.
Simple picture book tale of adoption for the youngest kids. A puppy is adopted by a cat.
This is the story of an adoption, one that deals with the idea that an adopted child might not look like their parents though they can still have a great relationship. It might be good for any number of different circumstances, from adoptions to step-parents to foster situations to families where the parents and children just look very different from each other. The idea is that though it's not always easy to deal with the situations that arise from appearing different, the most essential part o [...]
Simple, and sweet adoption/foster care story.
Really cute illustrations, but it's really on a didactic book explaining adoption rather than an actual engaging story featuring adoption. I can see its function and how that's really important, but it's just not fun or interesting.
A sweet and simple introduction to adoption and different kinds of families.
