It's my fellow tall amazon woman's first children's book.
By Julia King
I had no doubt that he was going to love it. The kid loves kitties as evidenced by his own epiphany:
"I love kitties my whole life!"
So dang cute.
So we read the book together Saturday night. (Never mind, Julia, that it was at 11:00 at night. I also fed him ice cream while we later watched Silence of the Lambs. What? He loves sheep.)
As soon as we finished the book, and as I went to the computer to email Julia to tell her how much I loved it, Logan said,
"Let's read the kitty book again!"
So we did. About 5 more times.
The book is about a cat named Bingo who goes outside his owner's house for the first time and tells of all the adventures he has. From run-ins with roosters, chickens & other cats, Bingo explores his beautiful new home.
If you've ever read Julia's blog, you know she has a way with words that is naturally poetic. This book is no different. The photography is amazing and it was all done by Julia herself. You can tell how much time and love she has invested in this book which she dedicates to her children.
The true judge of a children's book is of course a child and according to Logan, it passed with flying colors.
I wanted to keep the book at my house to read to him whenever he came over but he insisted he take the kitty book with him and because I'm like the best aunt in the world, I let him. (That along with a six pack of bud light. It's his favorite, and less calories than the original. Lindee, you can thank me later.)
I'm going to buy another copy for Brolan who also loves kitties as he has three of his own!
