Scooter 'n' Oaks: – A Cat Adoption Story
Scooter 'n' Oaks: A Cat Adoption Story is a delightfully entertaining TRUE tale of two rescue kittens who capture a lady's heart and find their forever home. One of the littermates is a very timid orange fluffball afraid to play. Another has black and gray stripes and just doesn't fit in with his flamboyant shelter mates. But can he purr - almost as loud as an airplane! Scooter and Oaks come alive through realistic dialogue and charming life-like watercolor illustrations.
Cat owners of all ages find parts of their pet's story reflected in Scooter 'n' Oaks, from the day of adoption to naming their kitties. Four five and six-year-olds ask to hear the story over and over ("A heartwarming story my 5-year old can't get enough of.") and 7 to 10 year-olds fancy the hands-on section at the back of the book. The creative and education bonus feature includes coloring pages, a word search, crossword, spot-the-differences challenge, maze and more.
Although intended for children, adult feline fans thinking about adopting a pet and elderly folks who used to have a beloved animal enjoy this book!
