A delightful, brilliant story with important lessons every child should learn, Camp Cattitude by Kate Giles tells the story of a kitten who remains true to himself and sets an example for others. Some of the lessons kittens learn at Meowmoiselle’s camp include how to be fussy, how to ignore their names when called, how to shred furniture to pieces, and more. The camp has produced some of the most famous kittens including the world’s best sofa shredder. When Snug joins the camp, Meowmoiselle worries he will never be able to fit it in with other cats. Unlike his fellow kittens, Snug loves everyone and is always willing to help. One day, all hell breaks loose when Meowmoiselle is away. It is Snug’s quick thinking that saves the day and leaves his teacher impressed.
Through fantastic illustrations and witty storytelling, Camp Cattitude teaches children and adults the value of courtesy, authenticity, and treating others kindly. I found the characters amusing and enjoyed the story’s clever and humorous depiction of cat and dog behavior. Children will love Snug and will be inspired by his leadership and problem-solving abilities. They will also be entertained by the activities and lessons offered at Camp Cattitude. The story reads smoothly and its fun vocabulary offers children an opportunity to learn new words in an engaging way. A wonderful children’s picture book with funny scenes and useful lessons, Camp Cattitude by Kate Giles will be a great addition to any child’s library. Highly recommended for children and adult readers.
