This book features two of my favourite things: summer days and cats. Enough said! Jenny has spunk for a girl; she's out and about swimming, collecting mussels, climbing trees and fishing. A great active role model to counter all those little princesses and ballerinas so prevalent in children's books.
My daughter loved this book and now my granddaughter is loving it too. It is a cute, gentle story, with a dilemma about how best to give two little lost kittens a new home. The illustrations are superb. Our Little Golden Book has survived almost thirty years and still has plenty of reading years to go!
We were able to check this book out at the library. I would love to own a copy of this book, but it is hard to find at a reasonable price, since it is out of print. I have enjoyed this book since childhood. I am glad that I got to share it with my girls. They like it too.
