Get for reading to kids

This was a great story! I read it before bedtime with my eight year old daughter. It’s very descriptive and I love the personalities of the animals, especially the cat. The reason why I gave it four stars instead of five is because I didn’t really get into it until the middle of the book. It had a bit of a slow start, but then again, the author painted the picture and explained a lot. There were also a decent amount of words I was unfamiliar with. When I started reading it, the wording seemed a bit before its time, and some sentences I truly didn’t follow. But, those things are on me! I would recommend this book to other parents looking for a new novel to read to elementary-aged children. After reading the book, we watched the movie Homeward Bound, and both me & my daughter agreed the book was better. We liked the original characters better than those in the movie, so the book definitely made us fall in love with the animals. Overall really great story. The ending was awesome.
