AND THEN THERE WERE THREE! Introducing The Other One

Author: Jane Seymour and James Keach

Illustrator: Geoffrey Planer

Reserve at the Library

Publisher: Angel Gage, a divsion of Left Field Ink, Inc., ©2003

Material: hard cover

Summary: This One and That One (the twin kits) knew SOMETHING was happening just by the way Mom and Dad were acting. When Mom and Dad explained that there would be a new kitten in the family, the twins immediately started explaining their plans for their little brother ... and who he would like more! How would they feel when their "brother" was actually a "sister"? The Cat family shares another exciting moment in their family ... that all children will enjoy.

Type of Reading: bedtime story, anytime reading, family reading, read aloud book, middle grade reader

Recommended Age: 4 to 8

Age of Child: Started reading with 4-year-old child.

Young Reader Reaction: Our preschooler loves this book. It is not an everyday request, but nearly 18 months later, we STILL get requests to read it before bed.

Adult Reader Reaction: Like all of the Lady Jane and Big Jim Cat stories, this is an enjoyable, humorous read. The great thing about the books is that although they are a series, each story is self contained. There is no right order for reading.

Pros: The book offers yet another story that families can enjoy. Even with a topic like a new baby joining the family, the author offers humor for all audiences.

Cons: None.

Borrow or Buy: Buy! Even for a family with only one child, the story is enjoyable to share. Toddlers and preschoolers will readily see themselves in the antics of This One and That One.
