Meet Charlotte the cat who lived in a big house with a loving family with a dad, mom, and five kids in Charlotte the Queen: A Two Kittens Book by Carlo A. DeMaio. Charlotte loved being outside during daytime. She had many friends and they would chase after mice, birds, and would climb trees. Charlotte also visited her neighbors' homes. She would go back home every night and sleep in her comfy bed. Every morning when she woke up, she would find a bowl of food and a bowl of water. She would eat and go to play in the neighborhood. One day Charlotte's mother noticed that she wanted extra food and she noticed that Charlotte's belly was growing big. She was concerned and called the veterinarian. Charlotte was going to have kittens and Laura knew she would have to take special care of Charlotte, give her extra food, and provide a nice place for Charlotte to have her babies.
The underlying message of thoughtfulness, kindness, and happiness runs through the plot. The illustrations by Luis Lopez make it easy for children to understand the messages perfectly and they also give a good pace and movement to the story. It is a beautiful book for bedtime storytelling and tutors can read it out in classrooms to help children understand what it means to be thoughtful, kind, and happy. Books like this that convey good messages should be introduced to children at a young age so that they can practice kindness while growing up.
