This is SO cute!!! The story of a sweet calico kitten who happens to get into some inadvertent trouble but whose mamma loves her anyway due to her good intentions. (Of course, I am partial to cats and we have a calico, so this review is a teensy bit biased--though I think all the trouble OUR cat gets into has been plotted out in her cunning brain ahead of time!)

Harriet adores cats and since we have a calico she is especially fond of calicos. Most of her favorite bedtime stories are ones featuring cats. Among those is Uh-oh, Calico! by Karma Wilson.

Calico is a kitten, a calico daughter of a calico mother. She's trying to be a big girl and trying to do the right thing. Unfortunately she's young and clumsy. Her mother, though, is infinitely patient.

The illustrations for Uh-oh, Calico! are bright and cheery. Sometimes Harriet and I just look at the pictur

I love the rhythm that flows with the text in this book. It provides a great beat for children to follow and with which to move along. It provides a great basis for children learning to read by providing repetition and gives cues to follow along. My daughter loves it, and I do too!
This kitten is learning how to live in her fur! She makes mistakes but mama cat will always love her. A repetitive phrase allows children to join in and the rhyming text is easy to read.

A cute story about a mischievous kitty. Good for reinforcing that you still love your children, no matter how much trouble they get themselves into.

Little kids will relate to Calico, who always seems to be falling down or making a mess. Luckily, she has an understanding Mama!
A great book to let your child know that being klutzy or making mistakes is part of life and we love them anyway!
My daughter loves this book! Its rhythm and flow are as fun as the illustrations, and it has a wonderful message.
I love this book and the pictures.
This book makes all of us laugh.
Cute rhyming.

Karma Wilson grew up an only child of a single mother in the wilds of North Idaho. Way back then (just past the stone age and somewhat before the era of computers) there was no cable TV and if there had been Karma could not have recieved it. TV reception was limited to 3 channels, of which one came in with some clarity. Karma did the only sensible thing a lonely little girl could do…she read or pl ...more
