Comments for Ginger

GingerGinger: 04/07/07

Just as Harriet was given a book at her last well baby appointment, so was Sean for his pre-kindergarten check. Sean's book is called Ginger and it is a much better read than Baby Angels.

Ginger as the cover art implies, is a ginger colored tom. He lives happily in the home of a little girl and has a comfortable basket-bed in the kitchen. Unfortunately his life is turned upside down when the little girl brings home a kitten.

On the kitten's first day the little girl doesn't think of Ginger's feelings and things don't go well. The kitten takes his bed, eats his food, and generally makes a nuisance of himself.

The story is one of sibling rivalry and the responsibility of becoming a big brother. It's also a reminder to parents to include the oldest child when having to take care of the needs of the baby. Show love to both and both children will grow to love each other.
