The Christmas Cats Encounter Bats is a Seuss-ical tale for young children which builds upon the morals of the first two Christmas Cats books (The Christmas Cats in Silly Hats and The Christmas Cats Chase Christmas Rats). Book One (The Christmas Cats in Silly Hats) stressed that twin sisters—or anyone— should learn to play together nicely. When one twin bit the other on the nose, it was a sign that a story about playing together nicely would be useful. Learning to cooperate is important for everyone.
Book Two, The Christmas Cats Chase Christmas Rats, urges acceptance and advises against prejudice. “It’s best to be open and trusting and kind, and always to keep an open mind.” Learn to accept others in a non-judgmental, open-minded fashion.
Book Three, The Christmas Cats Encounter Bats urges everyone to honor life in all its forms. Love and accept all God’s creatures. Some animals—(puppies and kitties come to mind)— are popular with nearly everyone. Others (spiders, lizards, bats, etc.) may not seem as worthy, but all are small cogs in the universe. Bats serve a very useful purposes in God’s grand scheme. All life should be valued. The bats of story three are just as deserving of respect and have as much of a right to life as any other creature on the planet.
There are strange sounds coming from the school bus parked at a local mall. The Christmas Cats are called to investigate and they find bats. ‘The Christmas Cats Encounter Bats’, is the delightful sequel to the ‘Christmas Bats’ series. It is quite Dr. Suess like in rhyme and is sure to entertain young children and teach them important lessons on treating others kindly. Even to those who are different to you. Sure, bats are not cute and furry like some animals but they have an important purpose on this earth.
I highly recommend the entire series and not just for Christmas. I can be enjoyed any time.
I bought this ebook after reading book II in the series, ‘The Christmas Cats Chase Christmas Rats‘. The opinions are my own and honest.
