A really sweet story I was surprised my 4 year old sat through and enjoyed this book since it has writing on the pages than most of the books I read her. I really loved the story until the corny ending. Patricia Polacco is one of my favorite authors Tonight I read this to my middle son He enjoyed it because he has good taste in books As always, Polacco s illustrations are lively and gorgeous. Book Title For the Love of Autumn by Patricia PolaccoShort Description of book In this story, Miss Parks, a teacher moves to Washington with her pet cat, Autumn She makes a new home with her cat and suddenly the cat starts disappearing There is a cute little twist at the end It may be better suited for grades 3 5 due to the love story at the end. Focus I would use this narrative as a starting point for our How to books we create in first grade I would pair this with informational text. Teach I would introduce this book as a read aloud and explain that we will be talking all about how we take care of pets We will brainstorm some ideas Then, read the book aloud Have students turn and talk about what Miss Parks did wrong with taking care of Autumn what could be done to pre
First of all, I have to say that I don t believe in indoor outdoor or outdoor cats I think cats should be kept indoors to the best of their people s ability that is all the time I won t even cat sit for someone with a cat allowed to go outdoors because I d be too much of a nervous wreck if they weren t inside whenever I was there. Patricia Polacco who should really have an author photo and biography here well, there s a link to her web site at least pulls at my heartstrings like absolutely no other picture book author ever has In my opinion, this isn t one of her very best but it was very sweet, and she sure knows cats well It s about a schoolteacher who adopts a kitten, makes a move for a job in Port Townsend, Washington, and the cat Autumn gets injured and disappears When she reappears it s obvious someone else has cared for her The cat comes What an adorable book As an animal lover and cat not owner, of course, but friend, I guess I found this book especially touching and sweet and spot on It s obvious Polacco had a cat of her own and knew just how they can help you unpack and scatter pencils everywhere and be the heartbeat of the home The illustrations of Autumn are completely precious I m not sure I was as big a fan of the people illustrations, but they fit well enough. I adored the story even if it was a tad predictable And even though the ending seemed a bit too perfect coincidental, I didn t mind, because, well, why can t things sometimes turn out so perfectly I probably should give this four stars, because of these issues they really aren t issues though , and because I did feel that the writing style wasn t anything amazing But, the story itself wins out and I have to give it five
