A big thank you to NetGalley and Indigo River Publishing for the ARC. I am voluntarily reviewing this book. This is a children's book. I found the graphics to be cute such big sad eyes. The story is heartwarming, not everyone would get the kitten from the dumpster. Very cute story, colorful. Lucky Coogie the kitten. 4 stars
This is such a cute story about a kitten named coogie found in a dumpster, He is rescued and finds a great home with aunt Lynny. I read this to my 6yr old and she thought it was so cute. Her favorite was that the kitty was a dancing kitty. Then she showed me the dance the kitty did. Such a fun and sweet story.
A man finds Coogie, a little black kitten with blue eyes, in a dumpster. He takes the kitty to his friend Lynny who helps animals. As someone who rescued a kitten from under a bridge, I was eager to read this story of Coogie. It was a sweet story. I really found the artwork to be cool and unique. My favorite picture was the one where Coogie had his little paw up. Some of the text was difficult to read because of the placement and the smaller size font sometimes looked too close together. It worked when the font was enlarged though. Other times the background made it hard to read. All in all, a cute story.
Cute story about a cat named Coogie who was found in a dumpster! Perfect for children who are cat lovers and elementary school teachers.
I love stories about animals and this one did not disappoint. It was a cute story about compassion and empathy.
Thank you to the publisher, NetGalley and the author for the #gifted copy of the book.
Super cute book about a little black cat. Loved it even more because I personally have a little black cat of my own.!
This cute picture book is a great story for building compassion and empathy in young students/readers. Coogie will leave a special place in reader's hearts and encourage students to treat animals with compassion. This would also pair nicely with information on Animal Shelters or being kind.
This was just really cute and I loved every single bit of it. It's perfect for kids and cat lovers. It promotes adoption and that animals need loving stable homes.
3.5 stars rounded up: This is a sweet story about a kitten, who is found in a dumpster. Coogie is rescued, fed and fattened up, then finds his forever home with Aunt Lynny. I know my granddaughter will want to dance with Coogie when I get a chance to read this book to her. There isn't a lot of narrative to this story, but the illustrations are adorable. Coogie's big, sad eyes had me wanting to pull him out of the book. This book is a great one to promote adoption and supporting animal shelters, especially as profits from the sale of the book goes to a Miami Pet Charity.
Princess Fuzzypants here: I love children’s books that charm but also teach something positive. Poor Coogie is abandoned in a dumpster and must learn to survive a very cruel world. He does so with a sweet purrsonality and pluck and big adorable eyes.
The pictures enhance the story as the young reader learns what life is like for so many unwanted cats. But there is always hope. Four purrs and two paws up.
Coogie wakes up in a dumpster. He doesn't like it because it smells bad and there is nothing to eat. Then big hands reach in and take him out. It's a young man who knows a woman who finds good homes for stray pets.
Indigo River Publishing and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you). It will be published on March 29th.
The kitten is depicted as small with big eyes. He's picture perfect. I'd probably keep him if he showed up on my porch.
The woman starts looking for a family for him. She finds a good one and tells him that but he's distressed. Can you guess why?
