Today I am going to talk about this lovely sweet story by Mrs. D., Olga D’ Agostino. This lovely colorful illustrated book centers around Nyda the house cat. This Christmas holiday cat is reminiscing about Christmas gatherings in the house as family comes home for the holiday. One Christmas the daughter brings home two kittens. Nyda delightfully describes how the dominate cat treats new comers. Made me smile, as I read this story from Nyda the cats point of view.. The story weaves in lessons of acceptance and reminds us that most of us start our in very similar circumstances as family and friends enter our lives. I enjoyed the lovely heart warming holiday story and I think most kids will love following Nyda in the house as she tells her stories .
