Mittens the sweet little kitten makes trouble when Nick brings him to school for show-and-tell. Just right for little ones getting ready to go to school for the first time or for a new school year

At the math table, Mittens pushes the counting beads until they crash to the floor. On the piano, Mittens runs across the keys until the piano lid slams down. Mittens even tries to look at a book, until it falls from the bookshelf Mittens is finally happy when he gets to meet the other students in Nick's class.

This My First I Can Read Book is perfect for shared reading with toddlers and very young children. Basic language, word repetition, and whimsical illustrations make this book just right for the emergent reader.
