COPY ISBN
PreS-Gr 1–Bad Kitty is so excited to get the golden egg for Easter. When the hunt begins, she skips blue eggs, purple eggs, and red eggs. But when Kitty gets to the golden egg, she’s in for a disappointment. Children will love the humor and colorful illustrations that are expected from “Bad Kitty” books. Readers will also relate to the frustration Kitty feels from the disappointment of losing and not getting what she wanted. A deep dive into that frustration could be an effective launch to SEL lessons for younger grades. There is also a deeper theme of friendship being more important than prizes or candy. Back matter includes options for activities inspired by the story.
VERDICT Recommended. Collections where “Bad Kitty” books circulate could benefit from this tale focusing on the importance of friendship.
