cute little story about a kitten who was born without a tail. Sometimes
little children are also born with appendages missing or perhaps we know
of someone who has. Little Nikko lives in a world of long tailed
cats and she quickly notices her missing part. As this smart little
kitten learns to adjust and accept herself as part of the family, a valuable
lesson is presented to the reader who experiences similar things.
Written in verse and rimed, the Adventures of Nikko No-Tail takes you through the playful growing pains of evolution. Each day her courage broadens and her adventures are more expansive. As her world grows larger, the brother and sister who are in charge of her upbringing, also get to experience the pleasures and the problems of caring for and teaching little ones. This psychology promotes a more disciplined attitude in the children themselves in their relationship with their parents.
When the story of Nikko No-Tailis read to pre-schoolers, they immediately place themselves in the moccasins of the brother and sister who are in charge of raising the kitten. This identification can be of great value to the one who is reading this story aloud!
