Little Cat Needs Space
By Dori Durbin
Little Cat loves a quiet and calm space. Dog doesn’t. When Dog wants to spend more time in Little Cat’s space, Little Cat gets frazzled and then she gets clever. Little Cat makes plan after plan to get back the space she wants… until she finds the space she needs. Children will enjoy Little Cat and Dog’s “sibling-like” playful antics while learning independence is okay but so is a loving compromise.
The Verdict Is In
First off, my hat is off to Dori! For not only writing an amazing book but illustrating it herself. I’m in love with the Little Cat drawing. This is a story we all know well. Sometimes we want some space for ourselves, yet sometimes we don’t want to be alone at all. Another aspect I really loved was that the words were all over the pages but there was a dotted path you followed. My son enjoyed showing me where to go next. I really do hope that there will be more from Little Cat in the future. Completely adorable book that the whole family will love.
The Dual Talented Creator

After earning a BA in English and a secondary teaching certification, Dori taught high and middle school English and Science classes for ten years.

After an illness, she switched gears and began her career as an certified personal trainer and fitness instructor. She also began to pursue her passion of being and artist and author.
