Mistletoe and the Christmas Kittens – is a treat for the holidays. The book embodies the true spirit of the season and is a gift that teaches the joy of giving. Mistletoe is a great way for parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and teachers to spend time with children and have a special learning moment.
Mistletoe is a cat that comes upon three kittens lost in a snowstorm. He selflessly braves the elements and his own safety to bring them to a warm home and to create a true family. In the end he teaches the lesson of “it is better to give than receive.”
“Mistletoe is centered around the holiday but is a universal message of doing for others,” said author Joe Troiano. “This book takes the focus off of holiday hassles and brings us back into the spirit of the holidays.”

This is a great book to read to children to show them what the true meaning of Christmas is and the way others discriminate people who are different, but at the end true love and happiness are found. I have a class of children ages 5 and 6 with special needs and I have been reading this book to them since the beginning of the month. One day last week one the students with down syndrome stood up and pointed to mistletoe on the book cover and said to the class, “Look, look, look mistletoe is different. Like me!” I choked up, became speechless, as I received the best kind of reward a special needs teacher can get. My kids can learn and see the way others look at them differently just as they see themselves different to others. As I told this story to the students mother, she cried and told me that everywhere they go people see her child in a weird manner,others point, in the playground the kids move away from her child or parents take there children away from them. And the mom sees how her child feels as they are doing these things in front of them. But at the end of the day the mother tells her child, “I love you just the way you are and there is nothing that will ever change her heart feels.”
Good book and recommended to be read in the Exceptional student educational schools and small programs.
This is such a cute book with a wonderful message! I have been looking for a book for my son to give his Grandma for her to read to him on his 1st Christmas. Hope I win! Thanks!
