Advent Reads Day 10: Charlie and the Christmas Kitty by Ree Drummond & Illustrated by Diane deGroat

 Welcome to Advent Reads!

This is an event I have had on my blog for several years running now.  Each evening I feature a different holiday themed book. Think of it as your Book Advent Calendar! I post a variety of holiday books including romance, children's, middle-grade, mystery, paranormal, and I try to find some that are other holiday celebrations than Christmas too. I hope you will stop by each evening to see what new book I have for you!

Synopsis: "In this follow-up to the New York Times bestselling picture book Charlie the Ranch Dog, Ree Drummond—the Pioneer Woman herself—delivers a story about getting into the holiday spirit and finding the good in all. Even though Charlie may not have put a kitty on his Christmas list, he learns that if you keep an open heart, new friends can come in unexpected packages."

My Review: Even though my son has long since outgrown children's picture books, I still love reading them and I particularly enjoy stories with animals. I have read a few in the Charlie the Ranch Dog series but you don't need to have read the other books to enjoy this one. It is cute and silly, full of animal antics. It is also the heartwarming story that I enjoy during the holiday season. The images are bright and colorful, full of vibrant holiday colors. A great little story for the littles during the Christmas season.

My Rating: This was such a cute little book and it will be great for any young animal lovers, especially if a little furry friend might be joining the family soon.  I give it a rating of Four Paws!
