Additionally, the author shows an understanding of situations in human life and how they play out and resolve. This shows up in how life’s lessons and interaction happen between the animal characters. The main characters are, of course, cats. This is a book for young children. While each story is separate unto itself, each story carries the book forward. I can see this book being read to children in an on-going basis, perhaps as each season approaches and passes as they do in the stories. Children have a way of identifying with animals. It is my belief that in doing so with these stories, children will learn valuable lessons in how to act and react and how to treat others in real life.
This is a wonderful book for young children. It’s entertaining while possibly instilling emotional and moral values in the young. I highly recommend this book to those who read to their children. I also highly recommend it to young children who read on their own. And I wholeheartedly give it 5 stars.
He is taken by a family, hoping it will be his forever home.
There are certain surprises for Boris, like he'll have to share his home with a cat named Olga, who is described as being grouchy most of the time.
The details of what this story is really about are better left to the reader to discover. The reader will, however, be transfixed on reading every word, going on this adventure right alongside Boris and Olga.
One of the real fascinations about this book is the fact that it's about animals; animals who talk, have feelings, and thoughts. The author uses carefully selected words to describe every movement and behavior allowing the reader to experience something so very feline.
This book should appeal to 5th grade and above, though younger children will love it too, only that they'd need help reading it. It would make for a great storybook to read a chapter every night at bedtime.
And one of the more amazing elements about this book is the mere fact that you don't have to be a cat lover to love this book.
I read it to my kids at bedtime, and they were quite excited each day, begging for the next chapter. They loved the tale of Borris the kitten and how he went from the street to the Humane Society to his forever home on the farm. They loved Olga the cat and the rest of the cast of human and animal characters.
I would recommend this book for family reading for children in preschool to late elementary, and for developing readers to challenge them. The interesting storyline should keep animal lovers enthralled. Do keep in mind that the author does not sugar coat things. There are a few tragic events that might need to be discussed with the children.
In addition, this is a great value. No short single night story, this collection contains weeks' worth of reading, divided into short, self-contained stories, each good for a single evening.
All in all, Feline Fascination provides hours of family fun for animal lovers of all ages.
