I really like this book! It is about a boy going home, only to find out he does not really have a home. It is a great book that could be used for lessons in middle elementary. Also good illustrations.

A boy get a cat from street and want it to take it home but no pet allow so he protect the cat until they both get home. I like the illustration and will use it on my teaching to show why it important to protect the one you love. Suitable for grade first to fourth.

This story is about a homeless boy who finds a cat and he gives names to the cat. The boy decides to take the cat with him place to place. This story is touching and emotional. The words and illustrations coincide with each other swiftly. It is a good read for 4th grade to 6th grade. ( )
