Uh-oh, Calico!: 12/23/08
Harriet adores cats and since we have a calico she is especially fond of calicos. Most of her favorite bedtime stories are ones featuring cats. Among those is Uh-oh, Calico! by Karma Wilson.
Calico is a kitten, a calico daughter of a calico mother. She's trying to be a big girl and trying to do the right thing. Unfortunately she's young and clumsy. Her mother, though, is infinitely patient.
The illustrations for Uh-oh, Calico! are bright and cheery. Sometimes Harriet and I just look at the pictures and make up our own story about Calico's adventures. Harriet's stories go like this: "Oh, she's doing.... Uh-oh! What happened? Now she's.... " and so forth.
If your little one is as crazy about cats as mine is, Uh-oh, Calico! would be a good addition to your library.
