My Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I loved this story! It was packed with amazing subjects that can be tough to approach with younger children. Orie is a handsome black cat with a lot of friends. Two crows are always picking on him. When school is over and summer begins, Orie finds out he has cancer in his leg. He loses his leg and has to hop instead of walk. When they go back to school Orie is picked on again. Having his feelings hurt. When the teacher decides to give them all a lesson in kindness they are sure to never forget.

Sometimes kids don’t realize what they are doing hurts others and need to be more mindful of that. This book emphasizes differences in others and that’s what makes them special – how they can all work together beautifully. I loved this book and there’s a bonus chocolate chip cookie recipe in the back that I can’t wait to try!
