Jasmine Green Rescues: A Kitten Called Holly (#4)
September 01, 2020
On her family’s farm, Jasmine and her best friend, Tom, find the ideal clubhouse for their animal rescue group. But much to their surprise, the shed is already home to a feral cat and her three kittens. When the mother cat leaves, abandoning one of her babies, Jasmine and Tom feel compelled to step in and raise the tiny kitten. But with a house full of rescued animals—and a veterinarian mother who has reached her limit—will Jasmine be able to keep another pet? Or is it someone else’s turn to make a new animal friend? A holiday backdrop and some lighthearted family mayhem add to the charm of this feline-focused addition to the Jasmine Green Rescues series—perfect for readers who think that animals are the best gift of all.
Illustrations/Photos (if applicable)
The details about caring for a cat and getting it accustomed to humans were great, and the English farm setting was tremendously appealing. There are not enough books set on farms and dealing with the ins and outs of caring for animals, and many young readers would like to be veterinarians when they grow up.
The illustrations add so much to the story and make it a warm and fuzzy read.This is a great book for elementary students who are fans of page decorations. Not only are there illustrations at the beginning of the chapters, but the bottoms of the pages have delightful landscapes of the farm, many including the cute animals!
Readers who love animals and who are begging for a pet of their own will root for Jasmine and take advice from her tactics in trying to adopt the kitten. Similar books would include Miles' Puppy Place and Jane Clarke's illustrated Dr. Kitty Cat.
