"As a mom and former teacher, I am keenly aware of how emotionally complex childhood friendships can be! Oftentimes, children are unable to verbalize their emotions or even see options to feeling LEFT OUT. In an effort to help, I wrote Little Cat Feels Left Out. I hope this book will initiate conversations between children and adults!"--Dori Durbin, Author/Illustrator of Little Cat Feels Left Out and Little Cat Needs Space
"In the second installment of her Little Cat series, Durbin continues to sow heartfelt seeds in the blossoming minds of young children. Little Cat and Dog are together once again, a delightfully subliminal pairing of two characters who stereotypically wouldn't be especially tolerant of one another. Just like children, Little Cat experiences twinges of jealousy when Dog, whom she identifies as her BEST FRIEND, starts playing with someone else. Seemingly written straight from the thought bubbles of a child and punctuated with colorful and charming illustrations, Little Cat Feels Left Out is a lesson for the young (and a reminder for the old) that anybody can be your friend...and the best part of a BEST friend is sharing him or her with others." -
