Love your Siblings – Colby the Courageous Cat!

Colby the Courageous Cat loves and cares for his siblings in this fun adventure. He teaches children that family is important and should be treated with kindness and respect.

I wrote this book in memory of my daughter’s cat, Colby, who we had for nine years. He was a wild adventuresome cat who liked to roam around at night looking for mice, squirrels and other little creatures of the night to chase.

Colby is an award-winning book. It received a Pinnacle Book Achievement Award. It is also available on Barnes & Noble.

COLBY THE COURAGEOUS CAT

BLURB:

Colby is one of a litter of four kittens. The kittens get into all kinds of trouble. Being the biggest and strongest, Colby’s mother expects him to watch over the smaller kittens and keep them safe. Read and find out what Colby does to meet his mother’s expectations.

Mrs.D.5.0 out of 5 starsHello, Kitty!January 22, 2018Format: Kindle EditionWho doesn’t like books about kittens, especially kittens which like adventures? It wouldn’t be a real kitten if it didn’t get in some trouble. I know this because have kittens adopted me a few times now.

“Colby the Courageous Cat,” written by award-winning author Janice Spina and illustrated by John Spina, is one of those books that entertains and educates young children at the same time. While following Colby the kitten and his siblings on great adventures, children will face a few dangerous situations that will make them applaud the brave kitten. It’s a lovely story that encourages children to think and act when they see a danger, and to take responsibility then they are in charge.

The bright, colorful illustrations and rhyming storyline put children into an exploring mood and paying attention to Colby’s actions, as he is in charge of his frisky brothers and sisters. Their love of exploring could get them in trouble, but the biggest brother makes sure he keeps them safe. It is a fast read for any child, wonderful for a bedtime story or nap, and to read aloud at mom’s clubs or libraries. A great book for toddlers and up, and for sure the cat lovers like me!
