One of the ultimate joys of being a grandparent is reading to your grandchildren. In the tradition of great storytelling, Julie Fortenberry seamlessly conveys her story to the mind of a child, who instantly engages in such a way that promotes shared storytelling and learning.
Lily's Cat Mask, both written and illustrated by Julie Fontenberry inspire imagination, creativity, and a yearning for learning. The style (word choice) and illustration so appeal to the child's sense of self.
Artfully and skillfully Lily's Cat Mask addresses the emotions that a child can easily identify with, i.e. feeling shy, sad, mean, excited, and elated. My 3 ½ year-old grand child, Harper relates to Lily's struggles and desires.
I give this book a Siskel and Egbert two thumbs up.
