My Review

By Lynda Dickson
Alycat has been looking forward to Thursday all week because it's the only day the kittens get dessert at school. But, too busy daydreaming, she misses out on her special popsicle. What will it take to cheer her up?
This cute book has more text than a simple picture book, making it suitable for children ages 3 to 8. It may be a useful tool to help some children overcome minor disappointments. They'll find that, with the support of family and friends, a positive attitude, and a willingness to try something new, things may turn out even better in the end. There are even instructions on how to make Alycat's Popcorn Popsicles. And who doesn't love kittens?
