Cougar Cub tales has a sweet premise.
It’s about two orphaned Cougar Cubs who come across a bobcat. The cubs are wary of the newcomer because he looks different, but they soon learn to accept him despite all his differences.
This story is set out in a rhyming style with pictures above each verse.
My take on it?
I have to admit I read this several times, to get the breaks into my head. The flow was a tad off in places for a rhyming tale and the rhymes rhymed inconsistently at times.
The layout is tin

This is a good book to read on learning to accept those that may look or act different than you.

We have two cougar cubs who are orphaned and spend their days playing and having fun like cubs should. Then they met a bobcat who is very different than they are. We get to read the differences between the bobcat and the cougars and they learn that you can be friends with someone different.

The book is a kind of rhyming which is catchy. The only problem I had with this story was the pictures. They see

I read this book to my daughter, and she really enjoyed it. I thought it was a very cute, interesting way to show children how they are not so very different once you look past the obvious. A few spots I felt dragged just a little, but my daughter didn't seem to feel the way at all. She LOVED the book- asking questions, pointing out things that she saw in the pictures, and just really getting involved in the story. I would highly recommend this for anyone with toddler to pre-school age children.

It's a good story that kids should learn. Everyone is different. My kids said that this was their favorite book they've read so far. I highly suggest reading this into a kindergarten class or even at home.

The story tells of two cougar cubs, who run into a bob cat. They talk about their differences, and how the bob cat can't be a cougar. They become friends, and decide they have more things that are a like, than they have differences.

It's a good book for diversity even though its with animals. The animals might be different but they realize they are really alike!

Get thee to an editor. Lots of typos and bad formatting in this one, and the illustrations need work.

Age range - 2 to 4 readability 5 and up. a lot of made up words for the rhyming so it sounds good when read by an adult but not kid friendly for reading alone.

Cute story. My daughter is five and still didn't quite "get" it, but it was a great opportunity to explain that friendships can be with anyone, same or different.
