Genre: FantasyAge Appropriateness: PrimaryMedia: Acrylic?Review: The shy little kitten is the only shy kitten with five outgoing, rambunctious siblings. The kitten is left behind and goes on an adventure of her own discovering many new friends. This is a fantasy because the characters take on human characteristics by talking.

This shy kitten meet a dog, frog, and mole and had a really good day. The shy kitten made progress on not being shy anymore. This book would be great for shy students.

For the past few nights, my four-year-old son has been taking a few Little Golden Books to bed.  I'm not really sure if it is because of the stories or the shiny gold spines.  The Shy Little Kitten he seems especially fond of.  We have three cats in our house.  Not one of them was shy little kitten.  They all, however, were just as cute as the shy little kitten.  I think the story might have been written around the adorable illustrations, but it still works.  What is really great is not only is this book old enough for me to have read, it is also old enough for my parents to have read.

I love the Little Golden books but this one was very disappointing. It is poorly written. I felt like it lost its plot half way thru the story. It could have been a very cute story with a great lesson but it's not. I don't recommend it.

My daughter enjoys the characters in the book but the story can be little hard to follow.
