5.0 out of 5 stars Why Does No One Like Me January 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author, Anat Umansky, has written a children's book with a special message. Anat Umansky is an author from Israel, who is widely known for her children's books. She feels her children's books are the best way to communicate with children. She particularly likes to write about emotions, to help children think

Kitty is beautiful, white long fur, that she likes to clean with her tongue. It appears that Kitty knows how beautiful she is, and she does tell all of the animals she meets. She wants to play, and she goes looking for friends. However, each friend she meets is not up to her standards, and she turns them down. What is Kitty looking for? Why Is this happening? What a wonderful book for parents and children. This is an important subject to talk about. What could Kitty do to make friends so that she would have someone to play with?

We have all been lonely at one time or another. What do we do to find friends? The book is written in verse which is fun to read aloud or alone. The illustrations by Vladimir Solop are beautiful and colorful, depicting Kitty, her friends and the environment so well. This is a wonderful book to go back to frequently, so we can all remember how to make friends.

The essayist and poet Ralph Waldo Emerson had it right: "The only way to have a friend is to be one." Unfortunately for Kitty, she was arrogant, abusive, and condescending to the other animals, so they didn't want to be friends with her any more than she wanted to be their friend. Some people learn from their mistakes, but unfortunately for Kitty, she never got the message, so she remained lonely and spent most of her day whining.

The story stops there, and it asks kids who are reading the story (or hearing it read by a parent) to think about why the other animals don't want to play with Kitty. The story offers parents a good opportunity to discuss friendship and what it means with their children. It's a valuable lesson for youngsters to learn at an early age, and Kitty's story illustrates very graphically why friendship is so important.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Message, But With an Abrupt Ending June 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
At the beginning of KITTY IS LOOKING FOR FRIENDS, the readers discover that Kitty is all alone with no one to play with even though she is so pretty. The book travels back in time to illustrate why Kitty is alone right now. Kitty wanted to play with friends, but she found fault with each of the animals that wanted to play with her: doggy, turtle, frog, and rooster. Kitty thinks that she will be happy just by herself playing alone, but that’s not the case.

There isn’t anything extraordinary about KITTY IS LOOKING FOR FRIENDS. It’s a basic children’s story with some great messages about respecting other people and not being prideful. However, the book really doesn’t have an ending. Instead, the story ends with a serious of discussion questions for children. I really don’t like open ended stories and this is the first time I’ve ever seen a children’s book end so abruptly and conclude with a series of discussion questions. From my experience, the discussion questions will help children think, but they will not enjoy the story not having an ending.

Overall, KITTY IS LOOKING FOR FRIENDS is an average children’s story, but that has a very abrupt and open-ended ending. Personally, it’s not a story I would enjoy reading to children.

Kitty is Looking for Friends is a book that could assist in teaching children early on what it means to be a good friend. Kitty was a poor example of how to be a good friend. All the other animals were good examples of what a good friend does. Unfortunately, Kitty doesn’t realize that and ends up very lonely. (There are spoilers in this review).

At first the animals came up to her wanting to play with her but she said mean things to them (though maybe she didn’t realize what she said was unkind). If I were one of those animals I would have been insulted too.

Later she invites other animals to play with her but they all say no. She can’t figure out why. My personal opinion is that it is because they heard what Kitty said to the other animals when they invited Kitty to play with them. Kitty sees the animals she first insulted playing with each other and having fun together and says “I’m not fussy, I’ll play with any of you. Who wants to come play with me?” Each of them tell her a quality they like about themselves and either refuse to play with her or she still refuses to play with them.

The ending was an unusual one as the author asks for suggestions from the audience in order to help Kitty. However, this isn’t really an ending for the story and I didn’t care for it as wasn’t satisfying as an ending. I felt like I needed to sit down with my child and help them write the author with some suggestions for Kitty so she could make friends, but that wouldn’t really help because the book still wouldn’t feel finished the next time we read it.

The pictures were brightly coloured and went well with the text on the page. There was generally only one picture per two-page spread.
