A cute story that delivers a positive message about perseverance through inner strength and family support

"Gritty Kitty, stumble and fall, stand back up—no problem at all!" Young readers will see themselves in Gritty Kitty when Gritty takes a tumble on the playground, struggles to wait patiently for a turn with a favorite toy, and experiences other everyday hurdles. But through grit and resilience, Gritty Kitty learns to get right back up again. With gentle humor, this book encourages young readers to find their own inner strength.


"A gem of a book that encourages kids to toughen up, gently. (starred review)" —Kirkus Reviews
