Jackson loves his soft, worn, fuzzy blanket and takes it everywhere he goes. His parents think it’s time to wash it and put it away, but the child won’t hear of it. Then he finds a tiny white kitten in the snow. He wraps it up in his blanket and takes it home. Jackson bathes and feeds the kitten and makes a bed for it using his blanket. The streamlined text and realistic watercolor illustrations come together to show how a boy grows up just a bit when the time is right. “A great addition to most collections.”—Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH. “The streamlined text and realistic watercolor illustrations come together to show how a boy grows up just a bit when the time is right.
