About The Christmas Cats Encounter Bats by Constance Wilson
“The Christmas Cats Encounter Bats” is the 3rd book in the wholesome series for children aged 3-10. The second book won as one of 7 Best Books of the Year by a Chicago Author (Chicago Writers’ Association) and this book takes the lesson of Book #2 (“Don’t be prejudiced!”) and urges young readers to respect life in all its forms. Just because an animal isn’t cute and cuddly, it is still life and should be respected as one of the cogs of the universe. Bats, for instance, do much good in the world, but are generally treated as creatures to be feared and scorned.
The winning illustrations by illustrator Gary McCluskey and the rhyming Seussical verse make this a lesson that goes down easily and will resonate with anyone who believes it is a good idea to teach youngsters to model good behavior, cooperate (Book #1), avoid prejudice (“It’s best to be open and trusting and kind, and always to keep an open mind.”) and to respect life in all its forms.
Book #1 is permanently 99 cents throughout the holidays. Grab a digital copy of the award-winning Book #2 (“The Christmas Cats Chase Christmas Rats”) and Book #3, “The Christmas Cats Encounter Bats.”
