Comments for For the Love of Autumn

For the Love of Autumn: 12/30/13

cover artSince our 2011 adoption of a stray kitten, my daughter has been devouring picture books about kittens and cats. One book that captured her attention and earned many re-reads in the three weeks she had it from the library is For the Love of Autumn by Patricia Polacco.

Danielle is a young teacher, newly moved into a cottage by the sea. A kitten, whom she names Autumn comes into her life. Everything seems perfect until one stormy night, Autumn runs away.

A missing pet, as we learned about six months after reading For the Love of Autumn, is an opportunity to get to know your neighbors. For Danielle, Autumn brings her together with a young man, who had found the cat after the storm.

It's a sweet, somewhat saccharine book about a cat, a girl and a boy. My daughter LOVED it every time she read it and has been requesting another check out for a re-read.

Five stars
